Look, I am all for supply and demand. However, when the demand comes from people who just hog the product in order to manipulate prices up instead of producing gasoline as needed then those people are destroying the supply and demand equation. When this happens average people suffer and when they suffer they will backlash in terrible ways such as communism. I much rather protect the correct and supply demand equation thru some regulation than to have an uprising of the masses and lead us into communism.
Pute: I agree with you. When the cooks in the kitchen starts bringing in poison, they have to be regulated or thrown in jail. Derivatives of derivatives will only benefit the designers. B.S. has gone on long enough.
