if there's too little demand, the high cost wells will stop producing. Simple as that.

"Let's see if we can get the prices to the 80's levels: 99 cents a gallon."

People seem to forget, we were paying 95-1.05 a gallon in 2001-2002 in a lot of the country. I surely remember paying under a dollar for a while there.

How is The Christian Science Monitor an authority on anything oil related? Looks like a bait and switch tactic for slanted election information.
