1) Aren't most oil companies National, state owned companies? Don't foreigners call the shots like OPEC?

2) who is responsible for not building refinaries.

3) can she give me some specifics on what she means by deregulation?

4) in speculation, doesn't it take 2 to tango?

5) Is it true that demand has been going up in China and India?
