Naimi Says Supply and Demand Don’t Justify Rising Oil Prices

“Saudi Arabia is concerned about rising oil prices in the international oil market,” al-Naimi said today. “The price of oil is simply not supported by market fundamentals. The market is well balanced, forward cover remains within an acceptable range and inventories are more than adequate.”

Too much GREED controling those in power to allow this to happen!! BIG OIL spends a couple of BILLION a year to get their REPUBLICANS in CONGRESS and in return make $100's of BILLIONS in profits.

If the Saudi minister recognizes it, why can't the current Administration see it?

A man on the radio in Columbus, Ohio today said the price in gas took a jump because the gas stations need to make up the money they loss over the summer. Talk about government corruption.

Supply and demand is not the cause its the result.
Tyrant corporate manipulators demand and the consumer victims supply the cash.

Even he will admit that gasoline prices are too high.

All about greed and profits. Even in the US and Canada, the more we drill and produce the more that is shipped away as fuels. It is not going to lower the prices here.

We know prices are not justified, but that bit of truth has not rolled back the prices.
