    Half of each oil barrel's production cost includes Security Money given to security agencies to protect the oil fields from attacks of any sort. And then everything else like costs of refining, transportation, taxes, etc., add on.
    We only pay for our deeds! If world was peaceful, fuel would have cost less than mineral water!!!!
