Are you outraged over the high price at the pump ? 3.58 a gallon for no apparent reason ? Lets see what the cartoon character stuffed animals say… take a look, it's actually very interesting. I agree with some of what the cartoon purports as a cause, but not all of it. Methinks the care bears doth protesteth a bit too much in defending the role of oil speculators who are trading fuel as a commodity. Quarterly profits in the double digit (b) billions of dollars on the part of big oil companies is where I'd begin. Remember the old saying, "they have you over a barrel…" ? Indeed they do.
