Comments:Oil companies should fall under a utilitiy designation, because the product that they sell is a necessity in everyday life. The price should be regulated by an oversight board just the same as electricity or water (city). The Government should also allow drilling inside the US borders to be monitored by the EPA. We need to reduce our dependance on oil and explore alternative energy, but do not bankrupt our country in the meantime with prohibitive regulations.
