CARACAS, Venezuela - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says he expects oil prices to keep climbing and predicts they could reach $200 a barrel.

It isn't the first time the Venezuelan leader has mentioned that benchmark-- though he hasn't said when it might be reached.

Chavez reiterated the prediction after the price of light, sweet crude continued to rise on the New York Mercantile Exchange and settled at $136.38 a barrel Wednesday.

Chavez said in a televised speech Wednesday that oil should be $100 a barrel, but could keep rising to $200.

He blamed the falling U.S. dollar, U.S. ``threats'' against Iran, and what he called ``bad management'' of the U.S. economy for driving rising prices.

Venezuela is the fifth-largest supplier of oil to the U.S.
We need to stop buying oil from that asshole. We are one of the few countries that can process the thick, sludgy shit he sells.

Sure his country will fall further into poverty, but that shouldn't be our concern. Let the citizens overthrow his fat ass.
The problem is China will buy every drop he drains from the ground. This muthafucker needs a mushrooom cloud
And every time he says it will climb it freaks out the speculators and they cause it to climb and climb.Where is a good School of the Americas graduate when you need one?

that's it, i'm fedexing him a box a shit... take that, fucker.
OK I understand the taxes, tariffs and labor costs associated with gas costs in the US. But someone needs to explain to my how gas 5 miles away from the US border is half the cost.

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- If there's pain at the pump in the U.S., Mexico may just have a remedy. A gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in San Diego retails for an average price of $4.61 a gallon. A few miles south, in Tijuana, it's about $2.54 - even less if you pay in pesos.
More and more people appear to be taking advantage of the lower price.

"I used to buy exclusively in the U.S. before gas started really going up," said Patrick Garcia, a drama teacher at an elementary school in San Diego who lives in Tijuana. "Since then, I've been buying all my gas in Tijuana."

The lower prices mean a U.S. motorist could save almost $54 filling up a two-year-old Ford F150 pickup with a 26-gallon fuel tank in Mexico.

Shrinking fuel supplies causing mad scramble

Public bus service may be halted today

TIJUANA – Truck and bus drivers experienced a day of chaos in Tijuana yesterday, as they chased a dwindling supply of diesel fuel. Today was shaping up to be even worse.

Pemex gas station manager Claudia Torres placed a sign yesterday to block the entrance to the diesel pumps after the Tijuana station ran out of the fuel.

For weeks, drivers from the United States have snapped up Mexican diesel, which is selling for about 50 percent less than in California.
That has resulted in a shortage of the fuel, and gas stations nearest the border crossings started halting or limiting sales last weekend.

By yesterday, diesel had started to run out at outlying stations, provoking delays or cancellations in public and private transportation. New supplies might not arrive until Monday.

Long lines of trucks and buses, their drivers desperate to buy diesel, formed at those stations still selling the fuel.

Public transportation officials announced that if they could not refuel their buses they would halt service today, a decision that affects at least 750,000 daily riders

This is just beginning to get out of control.

Imagine the things that will be taking place when gas starts edging closer to $10 a gallon.

Every great civilization in the history of the world has been destroyed or destroyed itself at one point or another. Most of them being were more established and some of them more powerful than the United States. I don’t know why people think the U.S.A. is immune from this phenomenon. I think one of those great societies of yesteryear was called Persia.
My Dad has been peddling a conspiracy theory he's been reading about for a few years now about how there is a "club" (i forgot the name, I'll ask him) of ultra-rich that has been calling the shots in the US since I think Truman was pres. At least the president or vice president since then have been members of this society. The goal is to create two classes... the ultra-rich and the poor in a movement towards a socialist society. With gas and food prices (and the cost of living in general) getting so high and most people being strapped with debt, i can almost start to believe that crap.
