Fuel Price Decline – My Conspiracy Theory Dr. Michael L. Ford 11 September 2006 Recently a friend called and said I should write a follow up assessment to an earlier article I had written on increasing prices. He felt the fall of gas prices should be tied to the upcoming election. I do not think he is wrong, but he is not entirely right. And, my original piece dealt with overall price increases, none of which will return to previous levels, even though fuel prices have dropped. One reason for fuel price rollbacks has been a new discovery of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Not because the find has immediately impacted current or future supplies. But the principle of immediate response used to raise prices had to be applied in reverse to some degree lest the real deal be exposed. You see, the discovery is so massive the amount of oil America knows it has became half again as much as it was before. It could not be ignored even though not a drop will come out of it for 7 years. Another reason for taking the price back down was layoffs jumped 76% in August. The demographic tidal wave forecasted of 77 million baby boomers retiring began before financial manipulators were quite ready. And people already retired and disabled shut down all but the most necessary travel to a degree beyond what had been expected. Oil companies do not mind making huger profits out of refining less fuel, but there is a swing point of production versus pricing that was very closely approached. A con can only be carried so far before the victim catches on. Then there was the slump in major purchases that tie up people’s incomes and financially enslave them. The housing market has been slumping along with the auto industry. People were beginning to stop making purchases ahead of schedule. The ability to feel free to overextend oneself must not be lost ahead of schedule. Otherwise, debt starts to be paid off and financial enslavement averted or diminished. You might gather I believe there are malevolent forces at work not part of overt economics. You would be right. You see, I believe two things: One, we are at the end of the age. Two, Bible prophecy is true. And, it all fits in.
