I was trying to explain PO to an American the other day, he would have non of it! His believes that there is plenty of oil but it?s the American government who is sitting on it preventing it from getting to the pumps but he didn?t know why!

Sad

It's much more acceptable to the human mind to say the gov is to blame rather than oil supply is peaking, since one is something that can be changed and the other is not.

Unusual response tho!

I find it quite fascinating with Americans. It seams to me that the US has the most freedom of information yet Americans generate more conspiracy theories than any other group of people. It?s almost as if people think that because the government is so free with information it must be hiding something!

Around the time my job caused me to get involved with oil market analysis, I had an American friend who expressed his delight that someone he knew would be in a position to penetrate the lies his government were telling about oil.

Unfortunately the lies he was referring to were the idea that the US govt and their oil company friends are deliberately creating oil shortages in order to push up the price.

Since the conclusion I came to was more to do with peak oil than conspiracy, he hasn't spoken to me since...
