    Very thoughtful post -- thanks. IMO, the new wild card in the oil suppliers' wishes for stability is those fundamentalist Muslim crazies now running Iran and probably Saudi Arabia within a few years. This is why we need to wean ourselves as quickly as we can from foreign oil. Shale oil and coal to liquids both seem to be viable options -- maybe even ethanol should be tossed in the mix. What this country desperately needs and presently lacks is the governmental will and strong leadership to put market incentives in place that will really accelerate major investments in these domestic energy sources. Incentives could be complex or something as simple as a large imported oil tax.

    My two bits worth -- Hammer
