of course this assumes the theory of supply and demand actually applies.... unfortunately, that has not been the case, as pure unadulterated greed trumps all!!!

Well...here we go again. The prognosticators attempting to earn their pay. Later today there will, not surprisingly, be a story telling us we should prepare for $5 a gal gas.
