Nationalization of Refineries?

Okay, we can go round and round about how this mess got started and how to fix it, but do we really trust the government to control the refineries?

I know the oil companies are the bad boys on this issue although it's ludicrous to dub them the sole source of blame.

I just don't think the idea of government control (ya I know they claim the people own it) is the answer. It sounds like something Venezuela would do.

...oh wait, they've (Hugo) already done it.

House Democrats call for nationalization of refineries

House Democrats responded to President's Bush's call for Congress to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling. This was at an on-camera press conference fed back live.

Among other things, the Democrats called for the government to own refineries so it could better control the flow of the oil supply. MORE
