    until after the election? WELL DID HE??? Pretty suspicious it came out a few days after Mr. I Love Big Bird won the election.

    The whole thing stinks to high heaven.

    The silence on the part of the lame stream government owned media says it all.

    That is amusing.

    A lot of people think the dip in fuel prices before the election is suspect though. Now fuel prices are going back up. I wonder about that one.

    What's the motivation for that one, oil companies preferring a Democrat to a Republican?

    As for the sex scandal, at most it is more of a diplomatic delay, than a cover up. Does anyone believe that it would have hurt Obama if it had come out earlier.

    Have you seen the oil refining industry suffer under Obama? I think they have thrived under Obama and are happy with his re election.

    Have you seen them suffer under any administration, I think they are probably red n blue colour blind.

    Elmo is red. Romney covered it up. Obama covers up Grover's scandals.

    Ok seriously I've got the giggles now. That is LOL funny!

    We can agree on that. They buy off both red and blue candidates. Obama has been loyal to them for 4 years. Why wouldn't the refining industry help him get another 4?

    I think they would. If it ain't broke don't fix it. That is probably how they look at it.

    Do you seriously think that this stuff isn't simply Chicago style politics? But I suppose you don't care because it is your guy who uses dirty tactics to cover his rear and achieve his goals.

    1. You have no evidence.

    2. Your conspiracy theory defies all logic.

    3. Stop letting the right wing nutcase media do your thinking for you.

    Refineries switch to winter blend gasoline in October, which is cheaper than summer blend.

    That does not explain all of the price drop, nor the price increase now.

    Splain to me this. The price of a barrel of oil goes up $3.00, the price at the pumps jumps the next day. The price of a barrel goes down $3.00 it takes, assuming it doesn't go back up the next day, 3-4 days to drop (where I am anyway).

    Oil futures are publicly traded commodities, just like gold.

    It doesn't always work that way. You should know that if you pay attention to the markets as much as you imply, but you obviously don't. Do some research.
