If you've kept up with the price of oil lately you've noticed that the fluctuations in the market have been like riding a roller coaster. The oil companies once again announced huge profits.
It seems using a crystal ball to predict the price of oil would be the most reliable method. The price per barrel seems to rise and fall at the whim of the controlling entity. It's all a game... and unfortunately we do not have a seat at the table.
Hopefully companies will continue to push for other methods of energy that utilize sources other than oil. Wal-Mart has announced they are working to utilize solar panels to provide energy for their stores in an effort to use renewable energy resources. If Wal-Mart has success with this project it could have a significant impact on that way many other major companies operate their business.
