Value is determined when something is bought and sold. If oil is not worth 140.00 per barrel then people won't pay it. If it is they will. If the oil buyers would stop buying it that would help a lot. Speculators can just as easily make money on the fall of oil prices. They don't really care whether it goes up or down. They just want to know which way it is going. Judging from the traffic I drive in just about everyone is happy to pay just about any price for gas. Here in Seattle we can't jump on the subway. Just the freeway. Oil independence is fairly easy to attain IMHO and we will get there sooner than you might think.
