Barry:

Always good to step back and put things in perspective. Your chart made me think of something I hadn't thought of before. I'm guessing jet fuel prices are also that much cheaper in the Middle East or Venezuela. Any facts and/or opinions?

Kuwait should be embarrassed. If it wasent for America freeing them they'd all have they're heads cut off by now.
