Makes me wonder why hybrids aren't more rampant.

I'm not saying I want to see anyone suffer, man. I'd just like to see oil prices come up a little and stabilize at around $60/bbl. At that price, the company I work for would make a small profit and I wouldn't be getting slammed with $5/gal prices at the pump when I fill up the tank. I think there is a sensible median where prices are feasible for both the producers and the consumers.

The biggest problem the oil industry has, IMO, is OPEC. Specifically, our good friend Saudi Arabia. But that's a whole 'nother thread...

Got it, thanks, hope you all the best regardless. I know how you feel and are going through. I have to travel all over for work away from family just to put food on the table and hope gas prices don't go up, I'm like many that if fuel prices go up too much then it's a wash from traveling to work, or just staying at home with no income.


So we are both dependent upon oil prices with regard to making a living, just on different ends of the same spectrum


I can't believe what this downturn has done to our local economy. Halliburton laid off hundreds and hundreds, maybe thousands all told, of people (in a town of 20,000) last year and so many folks are still without jobs. Theft is up all over town, to the point that it's just appalling. You can't even so much as leave your kids' muddy shoes on the front porch, or they will be gone by morning.

Yeah Didn't mean to suggest that you wanted to see people suffer. I fully understand where you are coming from just as I'm sure you realize that there are people on the opposite spectrum that get hit real hard when those prices go up.
