In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments; there are consequences.

- Robert Green Ingersoll

Refined Society

What country has not built an oil refinery in nearly 30 years, yet its citizens complain bitterly of rising fuel prices?

1) Argentina (Price per gallon in USD: $0.17)
2) Egypt ($0.65)
3) USA ($2.90)
4) Russia ($2.10)



Hint: Not only have there been no new refineries in the last thirty years, but the number of refineries has been cut by more than half and consumption has increased 45% during the same period.
