Oil prices are falling because the Federal government told the big traders they are being investigated for conspiring to artificially drive up prices by cornering the futures markets. This is very much like the Hunt brothers cornering the silver markets. The Senate is going after these pirates, too. I hope they also investigate how the Fed Reserve enabled all of this by dropping interest rates well below inflation. Also, investigators learn that the opponents of wind farms are being supported by the Oxbow corporation which represents oil, coal and gas energy producers.
