In case you hadn’t heard the news on CNBC or any of the other MSM propaganda channels, oil breached the $98 per barrel mark today. Did someone divert that shale oil I keep hearing about? It is now at a 9 month high and is almost $20 higher than it was last year at this time. The price of a gallon of gas is 12% higher than it was at the beginning of the year. Last year the price of oil was plunging and a gallon of gas fell to $3.38 by July. This year the price of oil is surging and a gallon of gas will be rising to at least $3.80 per gallon over the next few weeks. So much for that deflation we were all worried about. Rising oil prices mean rising food prices and rising prices for everything delivered by truck. Sorry to provide my daily dose of reality to the fantasy world painted by your owners. Imagine the prices if our usage wasn’t at an 11 year low. Thank you Barack Obama.
