Colbert on Oil Speculators

Colbert (Blue Tie): So my expensive gas is actually cheap right now? But I have to pay a lot more for it, because later it might cost a lot more?
Colbert (Red Tie): Yes. BUT! If we say we’re gonna drill offshore, the speculators won’t pay a lot of money for oil now, because there might be a lot of it later!
Colbert (Blue Tie): Like there is now!
Colbert (Red Tie): Exactly!
