@k2munda: Well, they can only control the prices to a degree right. At some point they have to raise prices because per barrel keeps climbing and we can only subsidize for so long. I hope you get what I'm trying to say here.

@k2munda: You are getting benefit from cheap oil from the Saudi's, if not you directly, than your govt and the country as a whole.

There is no such thing as a free lunch, so while Pakistan probably gets a discount and sometimes outright handouts from the Arabs, there is no such thing as free oil.

Yes it is… but it’s all done now. We have the original SaadIbrahim back as SaadIbrahim. That user name was “pre-booked” so to say, so welcome back Saad!

Gas isn't a global commodity like Oil, if I'm not mistaken. Though I believe Russia and Iran want to make it so. In anycase, my research might be a bit off. I wrote paper on it a year or so ago, I don't remember many details.
