The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is a consortium of oil producers, mainly in the Mideast. Its duty was to stabilize the oil prices. We now see our gasoline prices dropping radically, and think that it is great, but here is what is happening: America has inserted itself into the equation for oil stability. We have a vast array of oil wells around the nation (using fracking to produce this oil), but it costs more to use fracking than the normal vertical rig drilling method. The cost to produce a barrel of oil using fracking is about $83/barrel. The Saudis cost to produce oil is about $30.

The final shot of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” certainly left audiences pumped for the following installment. Seeing that fierce glare in Katniss’ eyes, all you wanted to do was charge into battle alongside her. Given the adrenaline rush the previous film provided, it’s a bit disappointing that “Mockingjay – Part 1” isn’t the grand final confrontation. Rather, it’s more of a calm before the big storm. That doesn’t make the film bad. It’s still remarkably acted, thought provoking, and light-years ahead of most movies being targeted at teenagers. Still, “Mockingjay – Part 1” also leaves you wishing for the good-old days when epic stories were told within three movies max.
