Re: Fwd: Price of Gas

I'm no fan of big oil either, but oil is a commodity, like cocoa, wheat, gold and pork bellies.
And nothing is more volatile than the commodity market. As a former
commodity bookkeeper for Merrill Lynch (during the early 80's when the
oil boom went bust) I can assure you those markets respond to panic and
can take on a life all their own. Very bizarre phenomenon. Personally I
believe this is all a tempest in a teapot, but that's probably the
cockeyed naive optomist in me speaking.
