Agree - mostly.  However, it is the fault of our elected government for 
listening to lobbyists - including the way overboard environmentalists - 
that passes regulations so ridiculous that only oil survives.  And I do 
believe that the oil companies play a huge role in that lobbying 
effort.  There is a lot of money in oil, and methinks that huge sums of 
money do indeed help - and keep - our elected boobs.
