    IF the world economy picks up, that would automatically translate to an increase in oil consumption. So, maybe supply/demand and consequently, the price, stay the same?

    You should research Michael Ruppert. Authored two books "Crossing the Rubicon" which has been admitted to the Harvard Business School library and "Collapse." Ruppert was a LAPD detective for 20 years and Rubicon was written in such a manner to prove his thesis: world oil peaked and our gov't knew it and used the 9/11 attacks to place 1/2 million troops around the worlds last 60% remaining oil supplies. Collapse examines peak oil, alternative energy, tar sands, etc. and shows that economic growth is based on finite resources in a model world of unlimited resources. Eventually oil runs out and what we have left is more expensive to get and use: that's why WTI stays near $100 per barrel and gas is around $4 per gallon. PGH is attractive because as the economy pick ups (if it does) then we need more oil and conventional, I.e. non-fracked, non tar sand oil, is running out and we will have to use non traditional oil reserves to make up the difference.

    So, since dividens have bottomed out since 2011, are we to assume that management is taking the money or making very poor choices...

    I was researching this stock to purchase for my son for a college fund, but noticed that since about 1/2 way through 2011, their dividends have dropped from about 40 cents per share to about 10. What happened and why haven't they recovered? Thanks in advance.
