Energy...

So it seems that energy...all forms of energy..are costing more!

The news says that the price of natural gas is "up".

The news says that the price of electricity is "up".

The news says that the price of gasoline is "up".

Wait a minute..what happened? What "made" it go "up"?

There is just as much natural gas available now as there was last year..yet the price is TWICE as high!

and electricity..did you see that So Cal Edison announced that they are closing a high polluting coal plant? This is because of an envioronmental lawsuit..but in their announcement they said, "We still have plenty of reserves and other generating capacities". Wait a minute..didn't we just RUN THE HELL OUT OF ENGERY just a year or so ago??? And if they have "plenty"..then why is the price so high? Shouldn't it be lower, based on supply and demand?

Something is wrong...something is VERY wrong with the energy situation in this country! Some very connected and wealthy people, I think, are making tons of money and grandmothers are having to wear TWO sweaters and in some cases, some people have to choose between heat and food! Something is very very wrong here!

(IMHO)

You might recall that we had the beginnings oan "oil crisis" during the Clinton presidency... and his administration actively made efforts to reduce the oil price... and it worked.

The difference, I would say, is that there is a buffoon currently in office who has too many cronies (and possibly himself) making a ton of money.

Is it really a coincidence that we have "oil men" in the Presidency and Vice Presidency and oil prices have, at times, gone over 100% of what they were on January 20, 2001?
