First, there are the facts: Americans consume nearly 20 million barrels of oil a day. Oil is critical to our economic well-being. The price of gasoline is climbing nearly twice the rate of inflation. Why? Where does the money go? What make the prices skyrocket and what are the solutions? These issues are examined and discussed, as is the way the system is gamed. The oil industry depends on consumers’ lack of understanding, or the disinformation broadcast to lull them into acceptance of one of the great ripoffs of all time.
