Energy Prices: Even the G-8 Has Concerns….

By June 11, 2006Energy

Here’s this item from the Financial Times today, noting that the G-8 — meeting in St. Petersburg, Russia — has voiced its concerns with rising energy costs and their threat to economic growth:

” Finance ministers of the Group of Eight industrialised countries said global economic growth remained strong but … they warned of the threat to growth from high energy prices and trade imbalances.”

Don’t you think we’d do our part to drive down energy costs by tapping our own supplies?
