That's Oil

When you don't know the answer, ask someone who does. That's what we did on my KMOX show this afternoon, with a couple of experts tackling questions about issues related to gas prices.

Ben Brockwell discussed the impact of the BP pipeline problems in Alaska and other factors that affect the price of gas you put in your car. Ben is an oil analyst with the Oil Price Information Service. Listen to the conversation here.

Juli Niemann talked about how gas prices are set on the financial markets, the impact of releasing supplies from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, and who owns the oil the big companies want to drill for off-shore. Juli is a financial analyst with Smith Moore and Co. Listen to the conversation here.

Did you know all that?
