    Call to Curtail Speculators

    U.S. lawmakers may seek to include commodity speculation limits in legislation designed to rescue banks from bad mortgage investments after a squeeze in oil trading sent crude to a record gain.

    Crude oil for October delivery yesterday climbed more than $25 a barrel in New York Mercantile Exchange trading, before settling 16 percent higher at $120.92 as the contract expired. The fluctuation, the biggest since Nymex crude trading started in 1983, prompted the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to say it was ``closely monitoring'' prices for manipulation.

    Oil reached $130 a barrel yesterday, 44 percent more than six days earlier, when it fell as low as $90.51....Crude should be $65 to $70 a barrel.!!!

    written by ABSTRACTMIND @ 1:04 pm, ,


    WorldWatch reports that Oil prices fell Thursday in Asia to $96 a barrel on concerns the deepening turmoil in the U.S. financial system will slow global economic growth and cut oil demand.

    Light, sweet crude for October delivery to $96.13 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange midday in Singapore. Overnight, the previous two trading sessions crude dopped by $10.03 .

    Oil jumped overnight as investors fled equities to crude as a short-term safe haven amid global market turmoil.

    Oil is not viewed as safe haven as gold, but investors consider it safer than equities, if these financial troubles lead to a world recession however, that's going to affect demand big-time.

    The Federal Reserve earlier on Wednesday had sought to calm investor fears by rescuing troubled insurer American International Group Inc. with an $85 billion bailout loan. The emergency measure came a day after Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., a 158-year-old investment bank, filed for bankruptcy after failing to find a buyer.

    Stepped up attacks by Nigerian militants against the country's oil infrastructure helped to support oil prices. In a fifth day of violence, Nigeria's main militant group said Wednesday that it had destroyed an oil-pumping station and a pipeline crossing southern Nigeria in a rare daylight attack.

    A spokesman for Nigeria's state oil company said Wednesday that militant attacks are now cutting the country's daily oil production by about 1 million barrels a day, 40 percent of what the country produced before the militant campaign began three years ago.

    WorldWatch see downward pressure on oil in the near-term, with the key support level at $90.

    Also Wednesday, the U.S. government reported a bigger-than-expected drop in crude supplies, reflecting the shutdown of virtually all Gulf Coast oil production because of Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Gustav.

    However the drop in crude prices does not reflect to the consumer in Portugal were BP,Galp and Repsol keep increasing final consumer prices...These inflated oil prices have the approval of the government .. and of course the higher the oil price the more revenue for the government...

    Portugal this very moment has the most expensive final consumer price for gasoline in Europe and one of the highest in the world... BP filling stations are the most expensive .

    The Corruption Continues...

    Portugal as one of the oldest nations in the world, continues to have one of the most expensive final consumer prices of any oil product (diesel /regular) in the world ...
    Even now as Crude oil fell to a six-month low in New York ...Crude oil for October delivery fell to $95.52 a barrel on the Nymex, the lowest since Feb. 26 !!!

    Oil in New York has fallen 35 percent from a record $147.27 a barrel on July 11 as high prices and slowing global economic growth reduce demand for fuels ... however Portugal this very moment has the most expensive final consumer price for gasoline in Europe and one of the highest in the world... BP filling stations are the most expensive ...

    This situation proves how these oil companies together with the government have no respect for the consumer...

    This situation places the economy in the RED, as consumers pay more and more for energy....while in the international market prices are falling...

    The crude market has decreased more than 33% from the July high of $147.50 to the today price $95.52 !!!
    However consumers in Portugal continue to pay as if prices were at a all time high ...
    BP,Galp and Repsol prices are today a ataggering 1.458 euro per litre for regular 95 Octane !!!
    There is no justification for the inflated gasoline prices sold by Galp, BP and REPSOL and in particular by BP.!!!

    These inflated oil prices have the approval of the government .. and of course the higher the oil price the more revenue for the government....Oil consumption in Portugal this year has dropped more than 11% and all tendencies indicate that it will continue and pass 12% !!!

    Oil Falls to Five-Month Low

    Crude oil fell to a five-month low as the dollar gained, curbing demand for commodities as a hedge, and a government report showed employers in the U.S. cut more jobs last month than forecast, a signal that demand may drop.

    Oil declined more than 8 percent this week, the most since July, as the dollar rose to the highest this year against the euro. Demand destruction and the strength of the dollar are tailor-made to send oil prices lower, If it weren't for the active hurricane season, prices would be below $100.

    Crude oil for October delivery fell $1.48, to $106.41 a barrel at 1:50 p.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Futures touched $105.13, the lowest since April 4. Oil has dropped six straight days, the longest stretch since April 30, 2007, through May 7, 2007. Prices are up 41 percent from a year ago.
    The dollar traded at $1.4262 against the euro, compared with $1.4325 yesterday. It touched $1.4196 earlier, the highest since Oct. 24.

    However in Portugal due to the attitude and policy of Galp, Repsol and BP Portugal has one of the highest final consumer price for any oil product (diesel /regular) in the world.

    These inflated oil prices have the approval of the government, these companies practice the same consumer prices all the time.. and of course the higher the oil price the more revenue for the government....Oil consumption in Portugal this year has dropped more than 10% and all tendencies indicate that it will continue and pass 12% !!!

    THE FINAL CONSUMERS ARE THE ONES PAYING FOR THESE COMPANIES EXPLOITS.. ACROSS THE GLOBE OIL PRICES ARE GOING DOWN BUT IN PORTUGAL FINAL CONSUMER PRICES HAVE INCREASED ONCE MORE !!!

    THESE COMPANIES IMAGE WITH THE PUBLIC HAS NOW REACHED THE LOWEST EVER...AND IT WILL CONTINUE...

    Upscale Baby Online Store


    I was so happy when I received news from my cousin that my brother's wife had a baby boy a they named the baby after me, "Thomas". I found this online store called SpiffyBaby.com where I can buy baby items for my nephew. They offered a great selection of Upscale Baby Gifts & Unique Toys, also modern crib bedding, designer clothes, baby jewelry and natural skin products.
    I also found out that they have a monthly baby contest. Beside all those big selections of baby items they also offer parenting resources center Spiffy Baby Talk where all parents meet with one another. This is very helpful for first time parents.
