Over the weekend I managed to get my hands on two documents marked 'CONFIDENTIAL' that outline a well-known airline's plan for continually increasing oil prices.

The price of oil may be on the run but it probably won't be for long. So enjoy it while you can.

U.S. car rental companies are now attempting to go green with fuel-efficient fleets. If they do it right, consumers will save a boatload hybrid manufacturers will have a field day and Green Chip investors will continue to rake it in!!!

The news from China's Shaanxi Province is seldom bright. Every few weeks, and sometimes more frequently, I read about coal mine blasts that kill dozens there. But that may change soon with new technology in an aging industry.

There's no arguing the fact that the successful test results from Chevron's newest golden boy, lightly called Jack, are truly noteworthy. But we need to put some things into perspective before falling head over heals in love.

Curbing consumption could significantly reduce your electricity bill. Buying shares of this company could make you a small fortune!

Over the course of the next two to three years, MMC Energy plans on buying enough power generating plants to amass 5,000 Megawatts of energy in the company's portfolio. That much capacity will have an enterprise value of between $2.5 and $3 billion -- ten times what the company will spend for the assets. And that's just the enterprise value. If things go as planned, we'll be looking at a share price appreciation of at least ten times, and probably much, much more than that.

I hate to say I told you so, but then again that means I was right, so it does feel pretty good. Bolivias Evo Morales delivered me that gift of reluctant satisfaction as his announcement of absolute control on May 1 has turned into the opposite.

Like most entrepreneurs Roger Davey is a man that sees something that very few other people do. Because of it he takes risks, he works hard, and he pushes his dream down a road with no sure answers. And like most monomaniacs his dream will either end in the Promised Land or at the bottom of a cliff.

Despite the misinformed allegations of naysayers, coal-to-liquids is not a pie-in-the-sky dream. It's a proven technology that was pioneered over 75 years ago and became highly successful in Germany.

The pieces have changed, and so have the players. The chessboard of the Persian Gulf and Middle East, whose previous controllers were Westerners, is now at least partially managed by local players namely Iran.

All is quiet in the Persian Gulf. The "Hidden Imam" is still nowhere to be found and it looks as though August 22nd will be like all the rest-just another day. Evidently, the "War of Gog and Magog" will have to wait.

A few days ago the International Energy Agency (IEA) -- a Paris-based institute that acts as an energy policy advisor to 26 countries worldwide -- leveled out their outlook for global oil demand growth for this year. The organization estimated that when everything is all said and done, global demand will have only averaged 84.78 million barrels a day (MMbbls/d) in 2006.
