Something to consider about Government regulations. The problem is, the government's responsibility has to stop at the natural resource - that being crude oil. Once crude is turned into gasoline, it is no longer a natural resource - it's a manuafactured product. I sure wouldn't like it if the government told me that they were going to regulate the price of the terrariums that I build because the oak trees that went into the plywood are a natural resource, would you? It's regulated at the level of the resource itself. The government DOES say how much the loggers are allowed to charge to sell raw trees to the pulp mill. After that, it's business and economy.
