Laughing all the way to the bank?

How many of you realize while the media is screaming oil shortage and We are running out of oil in "Two Weeks" Oh! Lord! Oh! Lord! We gotta stop using so much oil!

That the oil companies and oil lease holders are laughing all the way to the bank; About how gullible people not in oil industry are.


I'm one of them Laughing all the way to the bank with my oil lease checks.


Got a response on that one! Just thought I'd throw that one out to see how many people realized that is the only way the oil companies have to get the price of oil up to make it protitable to drill for oil. Roughly 9 out of 10 wells are dry holes. And it cost a hell of a lot of money to drill a well.

Update 2:

Just wanted to get you mad enough to start thinking where the most of the money you pay for gas goes. And it is not the oil companies.

    The top 1% of the wealthiest people earn 50% of the total investment income.

    Not the right source, but interesting nonetheless. The stat above I heard on NPR yesterday. Sorry I have no citation.

    it is a fraud they have enough oil for a long time. They just want money. It is sad that people have to play childish tricks just make money.

    I do enjoy going to the back every 4 months with a healthy dividend check....but it has nothing to do with oil.

    Not sure what you're asking though.
