Dumb question here but...
Why the hell are we paying a buck and a half for a liter of gas when we've got the Alberta tar sands and the green light to sell our oil to China ??

Ok well why is gas so much cheaper in the usa? I live in canada right along the boarder, if I travell five mins and cross the border i can get gas at almost half the price that i would here in canada..
Your theory only makes sence if everyone on the planet was charged the same price for fuel. Even when canadas dollar is worth more then the states dollar we still pay 2-3 times the amount for gas the americans.
To solve this problem the world needs to back away from using USD as the global currency. That is the only way to make tbings fair and even as americans would be for ed to pay the same levies and surcharges as the rest of the world.
Then, after the lack of investment due to projections of sustained, lower prices, it would spike, and you'd be even more scrooged.
