Oil Companies – White Collar Crime At Its Worst!

October 15, 2009

The recent rise in oil prices is the epitome of economic crime. One can not help but wonder how long the people and politicians sit idly while oil companies to steal from the poor to fatten their wallets full. On Friday, oil hit $ 95.93, slightly slower Wednesdays high of $ 98.62 per barrel. Only out of shear joy is my suspicion that forces are at work to reach the $ 100/barrel mark, only to say that it has done.

The reason for these high prices has become an annualTo abstain. One reason is the decline in U.S. energy reserves. How do the people go by billionaires were not enough reserves for the winter? This excuse is heard every year. Oil companies do not calendar? Why should low reserves goes into heat and holiday travel season? This may allow commercial inventories of goods would disappear before the Christmas season. Does that make sense? Is it a secret that people heat with oil, their houses?

Another is theproverbial storm. Okay, the North Sea storm closed some Norwegian platforms. If it does not happen at the beginning of every winter? Of course there are thunderstorms. In the hurricane season, there are, let me guess, hurricanes? We all know that and continue to do so, the oil companies. Do not they look for this plan?

These are my favorites: Perhaps it will get a revolution so somewhere the prices. There may be a storm somewhere, so the prices are rising. A prince in Saudi Arabia sneezed, prices go up in the air! That is allridiculous. There is no question in my mind that oil prices must rise. This is probably the major incentive for people to be forced into using alternative energy sources, most of which products are used by oil companies are anyway. Oil will not last forever.

The Washington reported that consumers are paying $ 4-5 billion a day more oil than it was about 5 years ago. This adds some 2 trillion U.S. dollars to the oil companies' bank accounts. How to do a lot more, oil companies want? When oil hitsthese kinds of levels, it affects all aspects of the economy. The list of petrol-based products is astounding. As consumers are increasingly consumed energy dollar, little is left for other products. My guess is that this year's holiday retail will be miserable. Who loses? The outlook is not good for small businesses, not consumers can offer deep discounts. Thus, the winner will be Wal-Mart and other super-retailers. Can the trend here? Small is not only not be ""be beautiful, small does not exist!

So where does this leave us? Up the Creek, I would say. Oil companies and speculators will destroy small businesses and consumers drive into the ground while they fill their bank accounts. Where are our politicians? Why are they not force change? Why did they let oil companies commit the crimes of the century? The middle and lower classes in America is bleeding to death and they do nothing. Have we any alternative?No! Are their heads in the sand? Yup! Elections come and he / she is willing to be the oil companies can get to my voice!
