    SUPPLY & DEMAND!
    The demand is driven by the European market where the majority of vehicles are diesel powered versus petrol. And now cars are becoming more available to the mass population of China, a HUGE population where few had access to a vehicle. That's a considerable factor driving the demand, and therefore the cost of a barrel of oil. If we wouldn't lose our shirt on the CRD Libby we have it would have been gone by now in exchange for a more economical vehicle. Size-wise, a Liberty is useless. We'd have more useable room in a Toyota Matrix and it runs for a lot less too.

    I don't disagree. When you see the grand & luxurious buildings being built in Dubai it does make you wonder

    Greed aside, demand for oil & fuel is at an all time high with more vehicles (not just cars) on the road than ever before. Companies run just-in-time inventory and need quick reliable delivery, something trucks can accomplish a lot better than a train. It takes a lot of diesel drinking trucks to haul the goods one freight train could transport. More countries now have access to affordable cars, and then you have those JEEPs sucking back the gas

    As long as the population keep buying fuel the demand will continue and the price remain high. We just moved back into town, in a downtown core, as we were both driving 30mins just to get somewhere. Although it adds 15mins commute for the hubby I can do 50% of what I need to do by foot or bike and another 40% within less than 5min drive.

    Screw the oilmongers!
