Holy smokes, has anyone seen energy prices lately?

April 8, 2011

With the DC posturing over the budget and an Iowa man on the 31st day of his beer-only fast dominating the news, I wonder how may people has noticed what’s going on with energy prices.  Oil nosed up to $112/barrel.  And I paid $3.90 a gallon for regular yesterday.  And all this before the summer season when gas prices usually go up.  People are starting to get nervous–and rightly so–about heating their homes next winter.   I wonder if as consumers we’ll plan ahead and take action now to make the home economics work, or if we’ll put things off like Congress.

Cheers,
Mike
