    Exactly what would that accomplish? The oil companies don't set the price of oil!

    Oil traders
    India and China: demand doubled.
    28 refineries knocked out by hurricanes, most not back on line
    Nigeria not producing

    And that's not all.

    You can't keep breaking things up into smaller pieces.... We broke up big oil once already (Standard Oil) and out of that came many more big oil companies.

    Didn't work too well with the Bells. Now look at what's going on.

    Chuckie Schumer (sp?) suggested this yesterday.

    Good idea?
