Thanks for your comments. I am by no means an expert it oil market, although I have acquired a passion for greater understanding of the complex subject; so, I appreciate your numbers, analysis, and commentary.
And, from your comments about just how much the price of oil would have to rise to get there, I believe these opinions reflect a serious amount of fear the growing unrest in North Africa and the Middle East is generating in the Western markets and politics.
Even more, such a situation speaks to the importance of energy independence. In my opinion, it is time for politics to catch up with reality -- we are entering a new energy economy, which oil will surely be a part of, that requires a new set of priorities, policies, and technologies.
