16. It's not peak oil - OPEC just cut "production"...
For 'production', read 'collection'. You can't make this stuff. Once it's gone, so is our advanced lifestyle.

OPEC is trying to manipulate the market.

Besides, for months I've seen oil prices randomly fluctuate from $1.50 to $1.73 and back again. Whenever the price is low is when I fill up. Right now, it's all politics and greed.

By 2010 however, it WILL be because we passed the peak production (collection) period.
