Oil and gas prices are absurd. They are not based on any reality. “Oh my, there MIGHT be a storm in the Gulf of Mexico, let’s bid up prices.” Who paid $83/barrel for oil and how much did they sell it for? Who is absorbing the losses? As Spock would say, “Most illogical.”

It is very interesting that the equilibrium between oil supply and demand, which has been relatively stable for 100+ years, has suddenly become out-of-balance over the past 6 years....Keep in mind that the average price of gas was $1.47 when Bush/Cheney took office in January 2001.

Every night I come home from the gym – beat traffic to get home, showered, and ready to watch Fast Money! The next morning I start my day with the Web Extra. I want a Fast Money Web Extra hat! I haven’t laughed this hard (in the morning) in a long time! Your team rocks!
