I sympathathize with your position, Lynette.  However, I doubt that the rise 
in gas prices will help the oil field workers, either.  The problem is at a 
governmental level, where the oil field workers have been literally 
legislated out of jobs.  I know of many wells that have been capped because 
they didn't "pay" at $5 a barrel, but the bureaucratic red tape keeps them 
from being restarted (or whatever the correct terminology is for oil wells) 
even though they would be quite profitable with oil now 6 times that price.  
We could provide a lot more good jobs for a lot more oil field workers in 
this country (and possibly actually help LOWER the price of gas at the same 
time) if our dear government would let folks do it.  I just hope I don't hear 
anyone griping about exploration and development of our own oil resources on 
one hand and complaining about the price of gas on the other....
