    Inside a $24,000 a night hotel room

    ...But that price was 6 years ago. It's closer to $30,000 now.

    I'm sure that @Landon Caeli gives Russia and North Korea a pass since Trump has praised their leaders.

    Nope. I hate them too.

    They're more socialist. Like the left.

    I drive an electric powered Tesla automobile; this car's battery gets charged with affordable non-carbon emitting nuclear energy. ...:)

    Californians ought to considered obtaining more nuclear power; nearly half of Illinois' energy comes from nuclear power.

    Totally agree. Nuclear power is the most efficient. I think my next car will be electric.

    Answer me this. Can California and Texas oil pumping companies sell oil at whatever price they want?

    ...Or do they have to sell it at the price dictated by international socialistic standards?

    Unfortunately, Republicans don't totally rule our nation. We've lacked a filibuster proof Senate majority in order to overcome the obstructionists filibustering socialist Democrats. Also, we now have lost control of the House where there is nothing getting done there now other than the investigations of Trump's finances.

    In 1985-86 Poppa Bush begged the Saudis to raise the ppb because they were going broke in Texas and Oklahoma.

    I suppose you could nationalize US oil companies if you really want cheap gasoline.

    No, its worse than that. Its global socialism.

    Oil sold at below the dictated price by the industry is illegal.

    ...All Arab countries are socialist. Free medical, free college... That's Why there are so many Arab doctors.

    And yes, the entire Big Oil Industry is Socialist at it's core.

    Sure they can, but not for long. They'd go broke and have no money to invest in drilling and exploration.
