It’s not perfectly clear to me that Democrat dominance doesn’t mean a bubble in the petroleum biz. Fear has driven up gas prices, and with them have gone refinery profits. Did they actually say they wanted Romney to win before they would hire him? Or is that just a guess?

IMO, which is worth a pit in the wind, the petroleum bidness will ride this election out and expand. Their suppliers and associated industries will do O.K. also.
But the general U.S. bidness economy is going to shrink like a willy in cold water. And that is what the general populace is going to be looking at.
As to their exact words, I cannot say - as he related the story to me, the removal of 0bama was weighing heavily on the minds as far as the immediate future is concerned.
I just spoke with him again and its a great concern. He's 46 yrs old, an mechanical engineer in the oil bidness by experience. I think he'll be O.K. My wife, also an engineer of a different sort, also thinks he'll be O.K. But this news today is a major step-back for America.
He's followed things in the U.S.A. pretty close and flown back several times for interviews. I wish him luck.
