If you are too busy to go read this site - then don't BITCH about Gas prices!
SEE BELOW !!!!
THE GREEDY AMERICAN CORPS. CEO'S & POLITICAL RAT BASTARDS ARE BEHIND THE ENTIRE
PRICE-FIXING OF OIL !!!
ERGO THEY ARE WORSE THAN OPEC & THE SEVEN SISTERS!!!
>COPY & PASTE LINK & TAKE TIME TO READ THE ENTIRE SITE!!!
COLLUSION - CORRUPTION - CONTROL - COLLAPSE OF AMERICAN FREEDOMS -
>ALL BECAUSE OF CROOKED AVARICE-RIDDEN RICH ".#$s & POLITICIANS -
>PAST / CURRENT / AND FUTURE !!!!!
>this is just small portion I copied & pasted from site! Tom.
> Using environmentalists and ecoalarmists like former Vice
>President Al Gore to impose costly environmental regulations on the
>refinery business, the global oil giants have been able to slow down
>the refining of crude into gasoline and at the same time, by adding
>cumbersome, costly and usually unnecessary regulations, they have
>further burdened those who can least afford it the independent
>American drillers and gasoline refiners.
> Since 1997, when Bill Clinton and Al Gore began to implement
>the pollution standards imposed by the Kyoto Protocol (the UN?s
>unratified Global Warming Treaty) most of America?s independent oil
>refineries across the nation were forced to close down because they
>were unable to meet the emissions standards mandated not by Congress
>but by the Clinton-Gore Administration. Once the small oil refineries
>were forced to close, small independent drillers and well-owners no
>longer had the means to get their oil to market since the large
>transnational oil conglomerates had no need for the cheap American oil.
> Unrefined oil backed up at the nation?s largest refineries and
>the cost of gasoline and fuel oil began to creep up until, in the
>summer of 2000, gasoline approached $2.00 a gallon in most markets.
>In markets where anti-pollutants or ethanol had to be added to the
>retail product, the cost of gasoline skyrocketed even higher. Afraid
>to take the heat for their own regulations, Clinton and Gore blamed
>the high prices on a shortage of oil from our ?friends? in the
>Mideast and on the greed of the transnationalist refineries which
>were trying to keep ?supply? on the short side of ?demand? in
>order to keep the price of gasoline from dropping as it does when
>supply exceeds demand. Gore, campaigning for the presidency at the
>time, demanded that Clinton release 500 million barrels of oil from
>the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to provide economical heating oil
>?for seniors on fixed incomes? as winter approached. (Actually,
>since Gore?s ecological agenda created the problem, his statement
>was made not because winter was approaching, but because the
>elections were approaching and Gore wanted to make sure he had the
> Clinton and Gore made a very public show of taking 500 million
>barrels of oil from the U.S. Navy?s strategic oil reserve in order
>to provide low-priced heating oil for the elderly?and then sold all
>500 million barrels of crude to the former Soviet Union because the
>American refineries were so backlogged with raw crude that their
>storage tanks could not hold any more oil.
> At the same time, with the media still crying about horrific
>oil shortages that would drive up the prices of gasoline, kerosene
>and fuel oil during the peak winter months, Bill Clinton was under
>extreme pressure from several environmentalist groups (who are funded
>by The Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Trust, the Pew
>Foundation, the Ford Foundation) to restrict new oil exploration near
>Prudhoe Bay in the Beaufort Sea. Geologists discovered the most
>massive oil reserve discovered in American ?territory? to date.
>The oil strike was found on the North Slope just below the Arctic
>Circle. Geologists estimate that there is enough oil under that
>northeast corner of Alaska to serve 100% of the fuel needs for the
>United States for 20 years, or replace all of our Mideast oil imports
>for 30 years. (Today, America imports 60% of its oil from other
>nations, with most of it coming from the Mideast.)
>While environmentalists (including Mobil-Exxon and BP-Amoco) have
>suggested that drillers would destroy some 20 million acres of the
>Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and with that destruction, displace
>the Porcupine Caribou which mate along the coastline every spring
>(when drillers are attempting to drill in 2,000 acres?about the size
>of a regional airport). The Gwich?in Eskimos who depend on the
>Porcupine Caribou for their food supply and winter shelter are rather
>two-faced about the potential environmental impact of drilling in the
>Prudhoe Bay tundra?something that has been going on for a decade
>since they expected BP-Amoco and Mobil-Exxon to drill for oil on
>their land...with the Gwich?ins? leasing the oil rights to the
>transnational oil companies. (BP-Amoco and Mobil-Exxon decided there
>were cheaper places to drill and let their oil leases expire.) If oil
>wells are drilled in the Refuge, it will be on?
>land owned by the Inupiat tribe. The Gwich?ins will not gain a penny
>of oil revenue. Because they are not happy campers, the Gwich?ins
>have protested to Washington, arguing that the drilling will be
>disastrous to the caribou. In reality, that is not true since
>drilling has been going on there for the past decade. Instead of
>seeing the herds depleted due to the intrusion of man, the Porcupine
>Caribou herds have increased 34% since drilling began on the North
> When drilling began on the North Slope, geologists estimated
>that the oil field contained approximately 9 billion barrels. To
>date, 13 billion barrels have been sucked from under the tundra?and
>the wells are still producing at full capacity. Geologists have
>estimated that there are at least 16 billion barrels under the Arctic
>National Wildlife Refuge which Bill Clinton illegally declared to be
>a ?national monument? to prevent drilling?at the insistence of
>environmentalists funded by Seven Sisters. *** SEVEN ARAB COUNTRIES ***
