Are you guys in favor of the government regulating oil prices? It seems that we are bound to experience a $4 per gallon gasoline prices in the next few months.

The reason there is no oil price regulation because it doesn't work, because it's inexpensively unstable. Setting price limits on any product, including oil and gas, does one thing for certain: it causes shortages in that commodity. So the next time you hear somebody supporting for price controls, keep in mind that he is consequently supporting for shortages and long lines at the pumps as gas stations run out of gas.
