Yes, I realize that. I have to laugh also after watching the debates last night. Does anyone realize that the government subsidizes the oil industry to the tune of billions of dollars when their profits are in the billions? What this country needs is regulation and price controls on diesel and gasoline like other countries that subsidize their oil industry. You want billions? Gasoline sells for $2 a gallon, diesel for $1.75 and can't be raised without approval. I'll tell you, if they did that it would jump start the economy almost overnight.
