"It's those darn speculators who wont let it rise that high. We need to stop this "price manipulation"!" NO, they're MANIPULATORS, plain and simple. We ALL speculate when investing, but they [Big Oil, OPEC, The Refiners, The Bankers, their friends, etc.] have the money to buy the dozens, hundreds and thousands of contracts needed to drive up prices or keep them artificially high which is what they've done kid. Do you have the money to buy eve two or three contracts? Do you have over $350k in assets, free and clear? That's what it would take at a minimum and enough cash.
