Just started watching his opening rant on his show and he is blaming "speculators" on high gas prices and how they are bidding up the price of crude to fuck all of us poor proletariat masses.

What an ignorant, pseudo-socialist grandstanding asshole.

I have news for you Bill. Speculators can short crude oil just as easily as they can go long, and have nothing to do with the long term price direction of any commodity.

ETA: Ever heard of an Increase in Demand?

I hope Bill O'Reilly gets a drawn out case of lymphatic cancer which eats his arrogant mug from within. Getting hit by a bus and spun around the drive shaft a dozen times wouldn't be so bad either.

A simple macro econ 101 class would probably teach him enough to shut his miserable pie hole.

dollar bill oreilly is a populist moron.

I haven't watched him much, but one of the times I saw him, he argued for salary caps on doctors as a way to control health care costs.

Fuck you bill, I want the best damn doc I can working on me - not someone who is willing to settle for a government mandated maximum pay. I want a doc who worked his ass off studying and practicing and working in order to get to maximize his income.

It is funny, when the value or a stock or future starts going lower, people assume that you are loosing money. I know a few people who made enough to retire when the .coms busted because they knew those companies were build on a house of cards and went short on them. As long as valueations are moving people are making money. Flat markets are the worst.

You're right, it wont get better because Uncle Sam make more in profit than the oil Co.

not sure what the excuse of the month is, but figured that there is basically a refinery monopoly. epa regs and just the overall size of refineries create a huge economic barrier to entry into that industry. supply is controled, so demand causes price increases.

There margins are lower!!! They are spending more money to bring/sell more product on the market however the increased costs have also lowered their margins from 2,3,4 and 5 years ago. Profit margins are what is the measuring stick, not proffits.

Explain how the refining bottleneck affects crude oil? Global demand hasn't doubled but the price of crude has. Last month the actual US oil usage came out much less than was expected. So the price was high based on this huge predicted demand, that demand turned out to be less than the previous year, the oil supply in storage was greater than last year, and the price of crude (not refined gas) still hit $68 a barrel. Please explain.

The other factor is the value of the US dollar which just dropped again. When did oil start going through the roof? 2002. When did the value of the US dollar start making a major decline in value? 2002 is when the Euro became worth more than the US. It used to be the Euro was to the American dollar the same way the Canadian dollar was to the Euro dollar. Now the US dollar is to the Euro as the Canadian dollar is to us.

I heard a report on the radio last week (havent heard or seen it since) that a fair number of storage areas, oil wells, refining pipelines, etc, etc that were ruined by Katrina are never going to be brought back on line by the oil companies, being deemed "not cost effective". The public statement by the company (I cannot recall which one) stated that in "due time" they will be replaced by new ones.

Demand doesn't have to double to cause the price to double......price is set by bidders bidding on crude. Competing buyers are driving up the price.

Supply and demand curves aren't usually linear. In the case of oil, the supply/demand curve would be on a logarithmic/exponential curve.

Oil and gasoline have inelastic demand curves. Small changes in supply or demand can cause dramatic price changes.

I would expect much more devaluation in the US dollar. One way of paying off deficits and debt is the devaluation of the dollar, and it seems that is the direction we are headed. Furthermore, I get a big hint that crude will soon be priced in the global market in Euros, then the gloves are off.

I am getting more and more of a sneaky suspicion that the true global currency is not the US dollar, but crude oil. The fact that I state that I have a "sneaky suspicion" makes me think I am way behind the learning curve.

Coal liquification...we need you. And nuclear energy. Can't forget about that.

Not a question, but a comment. We are not in a hive of collective thinking drones. Prices, hit $3.00, some will think agian about going for a nice Sunday drive through the countryside. Prices hit $5.00, and for much more, the country drive is out. Prices hit $10.00 as they have in Europe, and carpooling and use of mass transit. will be the norm.

Prices hit a sustained $X.00, and ethanol will be the fuel of choice...with hopefully liquified coal out of Montana becoming the norm.

Gimme Nukes, Liquified Coal, and whatever economic alternative energy source you can think of. I wanna see the Middle East collectively piss themselves when they realize we don't need their product so much anymore outside of plastics. Then we will face the problem of them blaming the rest of the world, once again, for all of their problems now that their cash cow has gone to pasture.

Not saying it will. I'm saying that if vehicles would get more MPG you would have less demand since you would be filling up less. Plus paying $3 (even though it sux) wouldn't be bad since you aren't filling up as often.

Then, you have foresighted Toyota, who is laughing all the way to the bank with their non-negotiable priced Prius vehicles which are by my understanding selling by hottcakes.

My cars do okay at best overall in mileage, though one does quite well on the highway. I'm not ready just yet to eat a lot of granola.

There are certainly some signs that speculation is involved. Not that that's a bad thing--speculators prevent shortages by bidding up prices. There are probably a couple of dozen reasons oil and gas are expensive. Both the supply and demand curves are very steep so a small shift in either causes large price increases. Last year US gasoline demand was significantly higher than the year before (or so I read at some point last year).
