Oil Prices
By Mark Neckameyer


July 11, 2008

Oil prices are still zooming up. All time record hit today of $147.00 a barrel, the stock market crashed and as it costs too much for me to drive my small SUV around town so I have to ride my bike most of the time.. Barak Obama again today warned against trying to "drill our way out of this mess". Senator Obama said it is foolish to drill as it would take seven years to start harvesting oil from any drilling begun now.

OK, my grandson is six and is starting the first grade in September. He won't get to High School for at least eight years and he won't become a doctor for almost twenty more years so I will advise my daughter to keep him home. Using the Senator's logic we can't educate my grandson out of his ignorance. Takes too long!
