Energy Crists

Wtf
The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gas this week is $3.27 — a seven-year high. According to GasBuddy, a price tracking service, the price of a gallon nationwide has gone up more than five cents in a week.

Meanwhile, benchmark crude oil prices have risen above $80 a barrel for the first time since 2014. As a result, Chicago-area utilities are projecting that heating bills will be up to 50% higher this winter. The New York Department of Public Service warned residents last week that their home heating bills could jump 21% compared to last winter.

"We are facing a looming energy crisis as we head into what could be a cold winter," said Helima Croft, managing director and global head of commodity strategy at RBC Capital Markets. Croft said higher oil prices combined with an increased demand for oil and concerns about a colder winter in Europe and Asia are all contributing to the spike.

Huh didnt we just do this with obama???? I wonder if they will bring up the evils of burning wood with the surge that will happen when people cant afford propane again. Remember they were going to outlaw outdoor broiler systems and only grandfather old farm style stoves still in use? I do....

Yay!!!! This is exactly what dumbass Democrat voters asked for. Who didn’t see it coming? I know, Dumbass Democrats... but at least there are no mean tweets and we’ve earned back the trust of our allies - except the British and French. Ain’t it grand to have “adults” back to running the country?

Meanwhile the strategic reserve, controlled by the commander and thief sits near maximum capacity, but down slightly as well...

Remember when you guys called me crazy for wanting a fuel efficient hippie car as soon as he took office? Guess what people, we got more of this coming. America's back is against the wall and these mother fuckers are winning.
