Why are oil prices so high?Why are oil prices so high?

(9:36) Why are oil prices so high? Republicans blame Obama and call for more domestic drilling to drive down the price. But is this how it really works? With some facts and figures to hand, The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur explains how money flows through the oil industry. Yet another reason why ordinary people's blood should boil.

Latest comment: Case in point: Canada has enormous oil output, but our prices are very high. We export most of our oil, a lot of it to the US. What amuses/terrifies/sickens me is how through reference to various pipeline schemes the Americans are calling Canadian oil "domestic". Sure, I understand that Canada is America's hat, but we like to imagine we are a sovereign hat.

This guy should be banned from speaking on economic subjects,he has no clue what so ever.The reason oil,and most other stuff, is going up is because your $ value is going down! In large part due to the massive money printing by the Obama administration.AS for who Goldman etc. helped buy in to office look no further than Obama.No it's not just the Republicans...

BoreMe is obviously very liberal, which gives you plenty of opportunity to argue against. So don't attack BoreMe, argue your points and see if you can change some minds.

Yes, there is more domestic drilling now that Obama is in office. Does that mean Obama had anything to do with that? Nope. It's due to the drilling licenses that were handed out during the Bush administration.
