Want prices to keep falling? Buy a more energy-efficient vehicle. If we all added 10% to our efficiency, that would knock 10% off prices (or more, since it would also panic the oil retailers into more price wars).

The demand would increase if oil were properly priced. It is about double what is reasonable for the world's economies.

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.
