The US Government,
in cahoots with the COMEX and sundry other parties,
is attempting to manipulate the price of crude oil (downward!)
by manipulating the futures markets.
Its a more obfuscatgory tactic than Nixon's simple price controls
and its difficult to explain to the ovine --
they won't know who did it.
But the results will still be the same.
Within months from now,
The USA is going to start experiencing spot shortages
of gasoline and other crude oil by-products.
Hang on, folks.
Your life is about to get seriously ugly.
