If I know my British chums... and I think I do... well, suffice it to say: homey don't play that way.

Going to be a very interesting next couple of days, I think.

(I mean: good grief - the British just unlocked their tier 14 carrier. Do you really, really want to give them an excuse to test it out?)

Oil prices are apparently going through the roof. Wall Street appears to think this is the point of no return.

Wall Street will take any excuse and jack up the prices. Funny how the prices come back down so slowly after the crisis passes....

I don't doubt your cynicism is an accurate assessment.

Wall Street doesn't just increase prices. People are buying futures contracts under the belief that the supply will be impacted. When supply decreases for a commodity with inelastic demand, prices increase, in a capitalistic system. Otherwise, people buy as much as they normally buy, and then you experience a shortage. In a capitalist system, prices increase until the point that people adjust their buying to match the supply.
