    Regarding prices...it takes a heck of a lot to get prices down. Oil prices are a good example. Oil might drop 10% in value, overnight, but it takes months or even a year for the consumer to see any savings. Price reductions are slowed down by conservative thinking all along the production/distribution/sales chain, and often that conservative thinking results in increased profits for everyone in the middle way before a consumer will ever see a price reduction...if ever. Which is why I just read an article about how the top 6 oil companies just saw a record breaking profit of $50 billion for one quarter. That's $40 billion right out of the pockets of your average Joe at the pump.
