gas here has been steadily declining for 2 weeks, it's $2.88/gallon here... yet diesel is $3.55/gallon... go figureor is the fix in?
crude oil has went from about 91 per barrel down to 84., yet gas has went from $3.19 to $3.34. home heating oil up over 3.53 a gal.
they've forgotten just WHO is "the boss"...I read in the financial news today that China has bought in to American oil & gas and we will start drilling and pumping for China. Now,wait a minute, the American government won't drill for American oil for American people but we will do it for China. Thanks Washington you've done it again.
You wouldn't be referring to the 36" pipe that goes through my yard... would you?Most of this supply is pipe-lined into the states, but the pipelines are concentrated in the central area of the country.
Yeah...that's a big pipe! At least they buried it! Out of sight...out of mind! :sssh: I keep hearing about people in Nigeria tapping into the exposed pipelines to steal fuel and setting off massive explosions and fires that kill scores of people. Maybe you can tap into it after TEOCAWKI for the residual oil? :scratchYou wouldn't be referring to the 36" pipe that goes through my yard... would you?
I knew there was an easement and a pipe buried back there when I bought the place but I was thinking 3"-6" pipe. The pipeline owner came in a few years ago to do maintenace and check it out. They dug up half our neighbors yard. About 30' wide, 100' long and 20' deep in order to inspect the whole pipe. That's when I found out it was 36" in size! Comes down from Canada and off to refineries somewhere. They had major equipment in there to do the excavating and thankfully didn't find any problems. I'd hate to wake up to a gusher in my yard someday.
You nailed my procedures right there. Once home from work I do not leave. Friday when I get home I do not leave until Monday for work. If I need supplies for whatever project I get usually get them Friday on the way home.Everyday I see such waste with the American public and fuel. For instance my neighbor and his family of 4, in the evening each one will go to town at least twice(each in their own car). We live 7 miles from the nearest store. DH and I have a rule if we don't get IT before we leave town after work in the evening IT can wait till tomorrow. If we all would plan better and use less fule, maybe prices would come down. Sometimes you have to hit these guys in the pocket book before they realize "They need us".
I agree completely, problem is that by the time enough people wake up and start screaming it could very well be too late. There's only so much oil to go around.Ain't no boss, just a bunch a clowns with fat pockets an no brains. Don't think there be no hope in site.
Fuel will continue ta go up until the public screams enough, they ain't got the sense ta scream yet.
