I'm amazed it's been allowed to go on this long. Rice, wheat, copper...bad enough. But oil? The very security of the United States depends on its price, and if speculative buying, by taking supply off the market to artificially suppress inventories in order to bid up the price has been allowed to occur on such a massive level for so long, why? It's not an overstatement to say that a special prosecutor should be appointed, along with an investigative panel of the U.S. Senate, with the chief mission to find out exactly what's going on, by whom, immediately. It's a matter of economic and national security.
