    Small diversion:
    Since the oil prices have been tracking the Goldman-Sachs predictions, some within both industries have suggested collusion between the parties. It is currently under investigation.

    Both Soros and Buffet went on record to call oil speculation another bubble phenomenon while being stingy with details, namely, how long it would last.

    Bigger picture:
    If you stipulate that Enron was a test case in how to control an essential commodity by stock speculation, then the practice has been extended to global markets for water, oil, and food. It is no less than a nihilistic acquisition of raw power by manipulating the economic apparatus.

    Suggestion to self: learn the arts price haggling and barter.
