why isn't there more outrage...

that we're paying an international cartel for our gas, a monopoly that actively restricts supply to keep prices artificially high?

"If we had increased our production given all these factors, you wouldn't have been able to miss the impact on prices," [Algerian Energy minister and OPEC president Chakib Khelil] said, suggesting prices would have slid.

oh, that's right, it's because our own government keeps pumping the economy full of worthless dollars to boost demand and keep prices on everything else artificially high.
