One thing to remember: Oil is not only used for gasoline. Its used for making plastics, other chemicals, etc. Market forces dictate that you use your resources in the most valuable way possible. Even if you doubled your capacity because of a new oil field being discovered, it wouldn't lower your gas prices because your country would most likely export it all.

Also, Where do you live? That high of price indicates you may be in Europe where gas subsidizes a very, very robust public transportation system.

That when Adam Baldwin's "Leverage" character was being questioned by Senators about a prvious spook team he had worked with, they were reffering to his time on "Chuck"

Still, oil producing countries generally have access to cheaper gasoline. Here however, we have insane taxes on gasoline and public transport is virtually non-existent outside the "bigger" cities. And yes, I live outside the bigger cities... Here it's drive or walk... or ski... I'm in Norway after all...

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

The more I fiddle with my boffs appearance, the more they begin to resemble the cast of Farscape.
