Oil is dropping like mad again, down $9 since Monday morning. Are the airlines headed back toward sustainable profitability, or is it all smoke and mirrors?

Just hope everyone doesn't forget the feeling of $150 a barrel oil. If that happens and our focus shifts from becoming energy independent it will only be a few short months or years before we see those levels and higher again.

Drill Here Drill Now(because right now airplanes only run on oil, Develop alternatives for personal transportation, Allow nuclear power plants to be built. There's no one solution all will have to be done.

I really dont care what we try as long as it gets us away from filling the pockets of countries who would otherwise without oil would be the most useless places on earth.

Oil will not stay down forever... Iran will have nuclear bomb at some point and the world will step up to stop them at the cost of Iran oil production.

What a short memory
Americans and the media have.

Oil drops $15 and USA today declares small car demand is down and the airlines are in the black all of the sudden, but not quite out of the woods.

WTF? This is temporary. To be folowed next year by the exact same thing

I've never been a huge fan of Canada, but they're not all that bad.

Foreign policy scholar are you? Just how much oil do we import from Iran? What countries do they supply?

The threat from Iran is not their oil, or production (they can only refine 40% of their own output)... but the fact that they can close the Straights of Hormuz in an instant, and thus cut off just about all middle eastern oil.

If they're smart, they've probably been "driving the price down" by shorting contracts.
