Reader comment on: How To Destroy OPEC

Submitted by Samuel Lasker, Sep 11, 2008 05:06

This all sounds wonderful etc. but will it ever come to fruition?I very much doubt it, even though it's the best thing that could break Arab influence / power around the world. Imagine Saudi Arabia without it,s huge wealth from oil .or Iran and that other madman from Venezuela. Living in South Africa, petrol costs R9-51 a liter and that's after a recent 79 cents cut with another cut due sometime in October. Prices across the board ,but mainly food have skyrocketed , due to the price of oil. I'm pretty sure that most of the civilized world would do much better without a few oil rich states, mostly Arab, holding us to ransom.The sooner we find other alternatives to oil the better.
