Oil plunged below $52 a barrel Thursday to its lowest price since May extending a sharp decline that has been led by dampened heating oil demand, but which could save consumers money on a more widely used fuel: gasoline. Crude oil has tumbled by 15 percent so far this year in a huge sell-off that was kicked off by investment funds last year, and then stoked by a historically warm U.S. winter that has left supplies of heating fuel barely touched.
First Bush got the price to rise in order to make his oil Halliburtonenron buddies rich; now he's making it go down to prevent us from switching to alternative energy. I guess he's doing this by using his global-warming machine. THAT BUSH IS AN EVIL GENIUS.
