The price of oil is coming down because America is producing more oil. This is causing the supply of OPEC oil to rise due to less American demand. The laws of supply and demand require that the price needs to drop to reduce the excess supply. that OPEC has. This is what we seeing. The Democratic policy of tax and regulating was in place to lower supply to help to raise price. The propaganda of the evil oil companies was due to government, who steals more in taxes that oil companies make. If the price is really high a few more cents tax is less visible so one does not feel the pick pocket stealing and blaming big oil. Big oil is allowing the price to drop so I hope the liberals sing the praise and not just the one sided gloom.
