    Supply continues to be up, demand continues to remain flat or even fall, yet prices continue to rise. Some claim it’s based upon concern about what Iran will do (a petroleum importer, by the way), or some other ridiculous excuse.

    The fact of the matter is this continued hosing of the American consumer at the pumps is almost exclusively the result of unfettered greed, perpetrated by oil speculators. Should anyone doubt this, it is very easy to validate.
