Oil Quotes A-Z by Author
If you look at the top 20 companies of the
world, 19 of them are still brick-and-mortar
companies. I have nothing against tech companies.
What I am saying is that if you have a car
manufacturer or an oil and gas manufacturer,
you wont get the supply over the Net.
Ambani - Companies
We've got a portfolio of companies that
range all the way from hotels to television
stations and cable TV companies, oil and
gas, consumer products, and industrial products.
If there's anything that I want to know
more about, I have the opportunity. It's
right in our portfolio. I can spend time
at the factory or with the manangement and

Kravis - Companies
The use of solar energy has not been opened
up because the oil industry does not own
Nader - Environmental
Up here in Alaska we're sitting on billions
of barrels of oil. We're sitting on hundreds
of trillions of cubic feet of natural gas
onshore and offshore. And it seems to be
only the Republicans who understand that
companies should be competing for the right
to tap those resources, and get that energy
source flowing into these hungry markets
so that we will be less reliant on foreign
sources of energy. In a volatile world,
relying on foreign regimes that are not
friendly to Americans, asking them to ramp
up resource production for our benefit,
Palin - Politicians
Weve got all these politicians talking
about better health care and what all, but
believe me, were not going to have
the money to take care of sick people..
or anyone else as far as Im concerned..
if we dont fix our energy problem
right now. Ive got an idea what to
do. It might not be a perfect idea, but
hell, none of my best ideas have been perfect.
Boone Pickens - Politicians
We are now spending half a trillion dollars
on foreign oil, importing 62 percent of
the oil we use, and we havent had
the leadership in D.C. to do anything about
it. We've got to move to other sources of
energy. But weve gotten way behind,
and will continue to pay the fiddler. Its
not a good future.
Boone Pickens - Politicians
Given the current state of our finances,
we could sure use a quarter of a trillion
dollars a year recycling through the U.S.
economy rather than through the economies
of Iran, Russia, and Venezuela.
Boone Pickens - Money
Money is different from all other commodities:
other things being equal, more shoes, or
more discoveries of oil or copper benefit
society, since they help alleviate natural
scarcity. But once a commodity is established
as a money on the market, no more money
at all is needed. Since the only use of
money is for exchange and reckoning, more
dollars or pounds or marks in circulation
cannot confer a social benefit: they will
simply dilute the exchange value of every
existing dollar or pound or mark.
Rothbard - Gold
This morning, prompted by increasing concerns
about terrorism, oil prices reached a record
high as the cost of a barrel of crude is
a whopping $44.34. Wow, it seems shocking
that a product of finite supply gets more
expensive the more we use it. Now the terror
alert means higher oil prices, which oddly
enough means higher profits for oil companies
giving them more money to give to politicians
whose policies may favor the oil companies
such as raising the terror alert level.
As Simba once told us: "It's the circle
