    I’m not so sure. In 10-11 when gas approached the $5 mark (pretty much over $4 everywhere) most people blamed Bush instead of Obama. :rolleyes: Somehow they’ll spin the cost of gas to link to Trump.

    You are probably right they will. I made it a point to look at gas prices on Election Day. It was $1.69 a gallon for regular. Yesterday it was $2.44 at most of the same stations. I’ve said it before election if Dems got the White House we would se $4 gallon gas again soon and it’s on its way.

    I think we’ll definitely see $3 by summer. In Lex 2.49 near the interstate, 2.39 in town today. Better buy it by lunch tomorrow, believe it or not, they like to gouge on the weekends starting Friday PM. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a 2.59-2.69 this weekend.

    propane only went from $1.65 to $2.39. since Joe been in. this is only the 1st 6 weeks or so. Best stock up in case KY gets the Texas freeze. we got no wind for the wind farm, and Sunny days only average bout 198 during the year, with 30% clouds, solar drops 10-25%, with cloud cover.
    KY aint a solar or wind state. without any choice, we will be paying out the wazoo, for imported electric, from other states, providing they have it, or freezing.
    Hope i'm wrong...

    Im curious about hydroelectric generators. My pond over flow might have enough to put a dent in the electric bill.

    They do sell them. Do some research on the internet but make sure you do the math right to make it worth it.

    WTI (West Texas Intermediate) Crude Oil Futures closed at over $63.00 a barrel the past two days of this week, it's selling a little lower right now at $62.35. Two days before Jittery Joe took office it was $52.27 ... that was 37 days ago and that's almost a 20% increase using today's price.

    Even with the price rising like it is; with the obvious roadblocks this administration is throwing up and will continue to throw up against fossil fuel production, I can't see a lot of people investing in this kind of energy to increase production and take advantage of the higher prices if they aren't already into it. This may push the price steadily higher until we are all riding around in our solar/electric/wind driven cars but ... that could be a while.

    In the meantime, I won't be the least surprised to see $5.00 a gallon gasoline by the end of THIS year if not sooner. :cool:

    the problem with all this green energy is they cant store it. i could make a wind mill, but storing the electric?. maybe with the gel-type battery's, it might work.
    the way the hill ridges are here, it makes a wind tunnel of sorts, and it might be worth it. light bulbs are getting more efficient. and you could run lights on 12v instead of120v.
    Just thinking...
    ya could produce your own natural gas., most do. i was thinking on a grander scale,. put beans an cabbage in a tank, add water,, you could use the fumes perhaps, to fire up a steam engine generator. :) well im gonna drink some more beer, hit the JB, and let ya roll in the floor laughing.

    Getting back to the original question Warren Buffett is a major shareholder in some of the biggest railroads in the United States and that's who's going to haul the crude oil from Canada into the US in down to the gulf
