Gambling site gives odds for oil
As news hits of a historic rise in oil prices (to $66 a barrel), America’s “largest online sports betting destination” tells us they’ve turned the world’s fuelish issues into a new category. Yup! Right there on the non sports events page — tucked between “Who will win Tommy Hilfiger’s ‘The Cut’?” and “Who will win the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards video of the year?” — you can bet on whether the price will reach $70 by the end of 2005.
What do you think: lie down and weep, or lay money down and reap?
