Whose "greed" are you referring to? People who want to drive their cars? People who want to heat their homes? Easily accessible oil is gone. If you want oil, you have to go where it is.

Yes, there are major issues here, like why the oil companies have not joined together to create a rapid response plan, team, and capability for dealing with the inevitable disasters like this one. Simply burying their head in the sand and believing the inevitable won't occur is not an appropriate response. Chenoble was an example of the latter. In contrast, Three Mile Island had the worst envisioned event for a nuclear reactor, i.e., a complete meltdown, but released no radiation and harmed no one. Speaking as an engineer, I always demand assuming the worst and plan accordingly.

I'm referring to the speculators on Wall Street. Quiet as it is kept, they control a huge percentage of oil. They can manipulate the supply to drive the prices up. This manipulation can affect any price that requires fuel...getting milk to the market. Hauling merchandise accross country is so costly and it gets pass on to the people who want to drive their cars and heat their homes.
