Where’s your limit?

I’ve been a little gun shy lately when I make predictions on where gas prices are going.  I’ll read some of the best guesses of analysts and then pen a story about a big increase coming.  The next day, the pump price drops a nickel!  Long-term trends are still warning of much higher prices and have been around for several months.

Events Beyond Our Control Threaten Our Economy

Now we’re in serious turmoil as a crisis unfolds between Russia and Ukraine.  Two years ago, our country became a net exporter of energy for the first time in a half-century.  President Trump, mean tweets and all, was willing to seek energy wherever he could.  He recognized energy independence as a national security strategy.  Then along came Bumbling Biden.  He began by appeasing the granola gobblers on his leftward flank.  Energy independence was gone like the flicker of a meteor.

We Need to Use Our Own Resources
