OIL PRICES PLUNGE: More great news: the price of crude oil has dropped 30 percent since the war started. Woohoo! It is ironic that a “War for oil” that is anything but that has indeed resulted in cheaper oil. My guess is the prices will go even lower once Iraq is liberated and their supply back on the open market.
