"Survey for state oil group also reveals that 55 percent believe industry is under regulated." I would have to agree with this story. the fact that refining capacity hasn't changed much in the last 25 to 30 years backs this up. They don't want to increase refining capacity. Why should they? By restricting the refining capacity they win whether oil goes thru the roof or not. Too much of our government policy and too many of our congressmen and women are controlled, or at the least, heavily influenced by these huge oil corporations. They don't want to see things get better at the pump. They do not want alternative fuels. They like thinks just the way they are! They are singing all the way to the bank and we are talking big BIG MONEY. We need alternative fuels and a government that supports those who develop them with more than just rhetoric!
