Scottish oil production increase could help squeeze OPEC
OPEC has grumbled publically that it would be upset if 'certain European
countries' were to tap their reserves, increase production and help push crude prices down.
Scottish oil has been selling at $35 barrel for weeks and has been
over $20 for over a year, and yet we as Scots see NO benefit from the
petroleum tax gouged from the oil companies and KEPT IN WESTMINSTERS
coffers, perhaps for a tiny income tax bribe before the next election?
