Probably Shell has a better idea of the limitations of the structure and doesn't want to lose it (lots of $$) or incur the wrath of the public for causing avoidable damage to the environment.
<<Amazing... Shell couldn't manage moving a drilling platform because of the weather and sea conditions. How can they be trusted to manage a production platform in the Bering and Chukchi Seas under the kinds of weather and climate conditions they will face?

Well thank you! I have all the awards except AM/PM and all the states. Would have the AM/PM long ago except I had troubles loaded three times and like you forgot to go back.

I'm a retired auto mechanic so I saw it all from flat head Fords to all the new electronic DOHC fuel injected engines of today. But the exhaust converters changed the Carbon Monoxide problem to a Carbon Dioxide problem. Whatever we do it affects something else. Know about the heavy foot and with the power in cars today, keeping your foot out of it is a challenge. I'm a pilot too so going fast in always NICE : )

Then you go back like me, started buying reg for 21¢ and later prem was 29¢ at Esso stations! But cars are a 1000 times more cleaner now and the mileage is way up. My new ones have over 450 hp and give 30mpg on the highway, 20 around town. The CO problem will always be there, more from other countries. Hopefully our kids will find a way to deal with it.

Agree 100%. NJ is the 3rd smallest state and with all the refineries here we should be the lowest but when we go west it's always a shock to see such high prices. Just wish for the good ole days of gas with a $1 sign in front of it. Imagine the boost to the economy saving $20 to $30 a tankfull at each pump stop!

Was in LA a month ago. Reg was $4.23 and $3.23 in NJ. Now it's about $2.95 in NJ and in Westlake Village CA where we were staying it's still $3.70 to $3.85. Here is the site I used: http://www.gaspricewatch.com/CA-california/Westlake-Village/gas-prices/page-1/2.htm It's a lot closer to a dollar a gallon than 50¢. It's still sticker shock to me

Just to let you know, your gas prices as well as others will and should be moving down a bit more, but we'll be going back up once again, sometime within the next three to seven weeks or so. I can see that it's bottoming. I could have already made a bundle going up and going down. Save the money when and where you can. Pass it on.

Love your comment on the weekly poll about Syria.

Do you still bicycle? Same problem. From the looks of your bicycle, you either do the same type of long-distance bicycling I do or you're a bike racer, which is way out of my league. I'm both a road and mountain biker and avoiding getting run over by inattentive drivers is a constant problem. I also scuba dive. Have a good day.
