    I certainly hope you are right. I still don't hold out much hope.

    If you're not in oilfield or logging and you're on the same roads as I am, buddy, you're very, very lost. And overlength, overweight and overheight (yeah, we probably weigh more than you do, but we have permits to be where we are). If you're running up on us on the interstate, relax, we won't be there long and don't like it any more than you do.

    Regards,

    I for one am glad oil prices are low.....why should I pay high priced at the pump....I know high prices equal jobs in the oil fields...but it makes oil worker look real gready....by sticking it to the public...just so they have their high paying jobs

    It's not us that make all of that money. The big wigs are the ones raking in the millions. $1500/wk is nothing to them. Be happy that you are paying less at the pump, but don't sit there and bash oilfield workers as greedy. None of us out here have any control over the price of oil. If you're looking to call someone greedy, I suggest you point your finger towards Saudi Arabia. After all, they are the ones trying to bankrupt US oil.
