No, but I do have 5 -18v tools now, and I did give away 5 - 18v tools for Christmas this year. Everyone likes how easy they are to use and they don't have to mess with mixing oil and gas anymore. In my estimation, that frees up 10 gallons of gas and 10 quarts of oil which is no longer needed. Add that to a low estimate of only 1 million such tools being sold last year alone, and I think you can see the dent it makes in gasoline and oil purchases without me having to do the math for you.

NEW YORK—U.S. oil prices fell to a new six-year low Wednesday after an industry group reported that crude stockpiles rose to another record ...
Even before the company has to face any of the government agencies?
Just overlook the massive fall in pps, the lawsuits, the government inquiries, the Senator, customers who bought the products, and the continuing fallout from the 60 Minutes story...
Amazing post - simply amazing - the attention span of children is under rated.
Even without any reports from the government?
Boy, you pumpers are amazing, lawsuits are raging, customers who have bought are coming out of the woodwork to share their stories, the pps is on a massive decline, and only a few days after the story on 60 Minutes breaks, you are already claiming victory of a $40 pps.
Amazing, the attention span of children.
Yet, you write that you contacted both of the above companies about tests on their laminate and feel the topic has traction. I wonder why you feel so compelled to put LL along with HD and LOW, but only in one area - testing of their laminates?
shareholders? It seems to me a company's stock that was selling for over $100 per share would have created a corporate approved dividend. Not only would a dividend reward shareholders, but it would have created additional interaction with the company which would have been beneficial in the predicament they currently find themselves in.

When oil prices dropped below $50 a barrel early this year, several analysts said $20 oil prices where entirely possible by the end of the 2015. Oil prices have begun to collapse again. The increase in $20 forecasts will return soon, if they have not already.
Recently, crude dropped as low as $42.50 a barrel. The trend continues to be mostly down. Reasons for the fall have included on ongoing war between U.S. shale producers and Saudi Arabia, a fall of in demand in some parts of the world that continue to have slow economies, and supply gluts so large that oil tanks are filled close to capacity. Several, or all of these, could be factors in a much more dramatic drop.
In early February, a Citigroup analyst said $20 oil was entirely possible. According to a Bloomberg article posted on February 10:
The recent surge in oil prices is just a “head-fake,” and oil as cheap as $20 a barrel may soon be on the way, Citigroup said in a report on Monday as it lowered its forecast for crude.
Despite global declines in spending that have driven up oil prices in recent weeks, oil production in the U.S. is still rising, wrote Edward Morse, Citigroup’s global head of commodity research. Brazil and Russia are pumping oil at record levels, and Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran have been fighting to maintain their market share by cutting prices to Asia. The market is oversupplied, and storage tanks are topping out.
