Correct Scientific Terminology:
Hypothesis - a guess as to why or how something occurs
Theory - a hypothesis that has been checked by enough experiments
  to be generally assumed to be true.
Law - a hypothesis that has been checked by enough experiments
  in enough different ways that it is assumed to be truer then a theory.
Note: nothing is proven in science, things are assumed to be true.

Have you read the links I provided?

You can see the various government spending that goes to support low gas
and oil prices in the links provided.  Feel free to dispute any one of
those as you see fit.

Please explain.  What it looks like to you is unclear.

A simple review of research into this question results in a larger number
than that which is reflected in the pump price.  What that actual number
is can be debated.. be it $ or $2 clearly the price of a gallon of gas
-- taking in all the costs -- is much greater than is being charged at
the pump.

You are free to ignore the evidence and arguments i've presented on this
subject.  Just as you are free to think the earth is flat -- however,
you'd still be wrong.

Looks like typical left-wing made-up numbers to me.

Anti-car rant.  Totally bogus because it leaves out vehicle related taxes
and makes up arbitrary "external costs" without taking into account
"external benefits".

"To be honest, I have no idea how one could sum up these estimates. There
are too many different boundaries for the costs that are counted and a
lot of troublesome math that wouldn't yield a terribly significant number

Refreshingly honest, at least.

Includes the defense department in the price of oil.  Pull the other one.

Repeat of above.

It looks like the loony left is trying to redistribute wealth towards
themselves.  Enough already.

And you're free to make up any numbers you want, but you'll need to do
better than the above to convince anyone.  It just looks like you want an
unearned piece of the energy action.

Like nuclear power for example?  Who pays for solving the problem of
permanent waste storage? And who indemnifies the cost of an accident?
A recent estimate of the cost of a major catastrophe like Fukushima,
were it to happen in western Europe was of the order of trillions of
dollars.  The utilities are incapable of insuring this risk.
