    Why will trashing Alaska for oil lower pump prices? Who owns Alaska oil and Wyoming gas? BP and Dutch Shell? But even if it was owned by 100% American companies, why should/would/could they sell it to American wholesalers for less than market price?

    If any of you owned oil wells would you sell your crude for $50/bbl? If so, why? What else do you sell for half market price? Would you sell your house or car for half market price? Why?

    Any farmers out there? Do you sell your produce for a third of the going rate? Someone tell me what makes gasoline/diesel different than every other sort of stuff?

    Doesn't more supply equal lower prices?

    Won't make any difference but it gives people something to think about rather than how they're being scalped by the inflation tax and fiat currency.
