I am outraged at this blatant manipulation of the oil market - the price has fallen over 75% in a mere 6 months, clearly this cannot be because of underlying supply & demand factors alone, so it must be speculation holding the price artificially low. Why isn't any government holding hearings to investigate this shocking state of affairs? Workers on the oil patch are being victimised by a cabal of the auto-lobby and gas-guzzling SUV owners who clearly have a vested interest in pushing the price below fair value. With oil so far below the cost of production, who can anyone justify this in terms of underlying supply & demand? It's gotta be a bunch of gamblers and manipulators doing all this.
