If you follow energy closely, you’ve likely lost count of the number of times you’ve heard an economist, executive or government official explain that oil prices are set by the global market, and not by oil companies or the US government.

They say that every cloud has a silver lining. If future energy consumption (which is mostly fossil fuel) drops because of a financial collapse brought on by high oil prices and other limits, then, at least in theory, climate change should be less of a problem.
