Limiting oil price speculation

Last year congress held hearings indicating that oil price speculation drives up prices on the futures market.  And then in March we learned that Goldman Sachs might have had something to do with driving oil prices to nearly $150 per barrell and $4-a-gallon gasoline when it looked like the country was going to fall apart. 

There is now legislation being passed to limit the practice.  This only works if both sides of the Atlantic end oil speculation.  [via]
