The current depression of oil prices is due in part to the fact that OPEC
refuses to lower production. While they MIGHT be doing this for their own
reasons, it is also POSSIBLE that they are doing so because the Obama
administration wishes to put extreme pressure on Russia.
So while one could debate Carter's influence on the oil prices in 1979, one
can also rationally debate Obama's influence now.
