This smells like an excuse to bleed the oil & gas majors.


Uh, 1 cent a barrel is "bleeding" the oil and gas majors? }};-O

Lets see, they sell a barrel for a bit over $70, one cent wouldn't even be a rounding error or a scratch.

They probably spend more than that on the office Christmas party. They probably paid management way more for his bonus for saving money by not doing it right!

Scheesch I was thinking five bucks a barrel to be used to clean up the mess and encourage the nation to get off the reliance on oil (not to mention pay down a bit of the national debt). Since the oil majors wouldn't actually be paying it the consumer would, why not 10 bucks?

One cent a barrel indeed!
