  • SPR Oil Level Hits 40-Year Low as Hurricane Season Fires Up. Thanks, Brandon.

    The Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1. However, until now, we’ve had an eerily quiet stretch of virtually no major storm threats to the Gulf of Mexico or the U.S. mainland. However, that could soon change as “Invest 98L,” currently swirling in the southeastern Caribbean, is predicted to go tropical and potentially enter the Gulf next week as a major hurricane. That’s a problem. Possibly a major, scary problem, because almost anytime even a moderate strength hurricane enters the Gulf of Mexico, oil production on the rigs at sea to the refineries that dot the southern U.S. Gulf...

    President Joe Biden claimed that the cost for a gallon of gasoline was under three dollars, during a White House event on Monday about higher costs experienced by consumers. “In some few states, it’s below three bucks,” he said. “It’s in the low threes in other places.” No state has an average price of under three dollars, according to the American Automobile Association. The lowest price for a gallon of gas is in Mississippi, according to, which is $3.04. But Biden did not correct his statement. Last week, Biden made a similar claim, which was fact-checked and corrected by...
  • Your utility bill is going up in October thanks to higher natural gas prices

    Utilities are paying more for natural gas, which means many Colorado customers will see higher bills starting Oct. 1. The Colorado Public Utilities Commission approved fuel rate adjustments Wednesday for Xcel Energy-Colorado and Atmos Energy Corp. Regulations allow the utilities to pass through higher fuel costs to customers. Although Xcel Energy customers will see monthly increases in the single digits, they could end up paying nearly 54% more in December than they did in December 2021, according to a notice sent by the company. The PUC’s action on the companies’ fuel-cost adjustment is separate from pending decisions on proposed increases...
  • Inflation in August 'Higher Than Expected' Even With Sharp Drop in Gas Prices

    PJ Media ^ | 09/13/2022 | Rick Moran
    Joe Biden and the Democrats had been riding “almost not catastrophic” economic news for much of the summer, pointing to a drop in gasoline prices as “proof” that Biden’s policies were “working.” Gas prices are down — for the moment. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen believes prices at the pump will start going up again this winter. But even falling gas prices couldn’t bring down the overall rate of inflation that came in “higher than expected” at 8.3%. Prices have climbed 0.1% since July, and the Federal Reserve is now expected to raise interest rates other three-quarters of a percentage point...

    Biden’s administration is getting more and more desperate as the Midterms loom as the pace at which they are draining the nation’s so-called ‘strategic’ reserve of crude oil just went to ’11’. Last week saw almost 8.54 million barrels withdrawn from the SPR – the biggest weekly drain in history. ... This unprecedented collapse of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to its lowest since September 1984 has helped lower oil prices (from their record highs)… ... the price of gas at the pump is still up 76% since Biden was . ...

    Russia said Tuesday that it would not resume natural gas flow to the European Union until sanctions are lifted, all but acknowledging that it is intentionally inflicting an energy crisis on Europe as a means of countering Western economic punishment for its invasion of Ukraine... “It is important to recall that there is not just one gas pipeline from Russia to Europe,” European Commission energy spokesman Tim McPhie said Monday. “If there was a technical problem which was impeding supplies via Nord Stream 1, there would be a possibility, if there was willingness, to deliver gas to Europe through other...

    As many as half of British households may be facing fuel poverty because of the inexorable rise in energy prices, EDF, the French utility that also has business in the UK, has warned. .... The UK's energy market regulator Ofgem is set to announce the latest energy price cap this week, which will see electricity bills for millions of Britons rise considerably. The price cap, aimed to protect households from excessively high bills by capping the price increases that providers can pass on to them, normally gets adjusted twice a year. In April this year, the cap was raised by...

    CNN is apparently desperate to convince Americans to stop taking the glass-half-empty view of absurdly high gas prices that declined somewhat. Look on the bright side, says CNN: think of the small gas price dip as a $100-a-month raise instead! “Next time you stop at a gas station, think of it as a $100-a-month tax cut. Or a maybe $100-a-month raise,” CNN tweeted to its over 59 million followers on Aug. 19. The original CNN Business Senior Writer Chris Isidore’s propaganda piece was headlined: “America just got a $100-a-month raise.” CNN’s tweet was massively ratioed with over a whopping 7,100...

    Average gas prices fell below the all important psychological mark of $4 a gallon today, according to AAA. Prices have fallen for 58 days in a row now, giving consumers some much needed breathing room.“Americans today will spend nearly $400 million less on gasoline than they did in mid-June,” said a GasBuddy blog early this week. The GasBuddy app helps customers find the lowest-cost pumps near them. Gas prices peaked at over $5 in mid-June, with customers in some parts of the country paying as much as $6.43 per gallon.Why are gas prices falling? Gas prices are the lowest they’ve...
  • Repossession surge looming as some new car owners struggle to make payments

    LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — A perfect economic storm of inflation, soaring gas prices and the unintended consequences of the federal pandemic relief programs is closing in on many car owners. “We’re talking, on average, 15,000 repos a day nationwide,” said Mark Zane, owner of a repossession company and president of the Nevada Association of Licensed Repossessors. Zane says repossessions were all but non-existent during the pandemic because banks were working with car owners to defer payments or help them get caught up. Those days are ending, however, and banks are taking the necessary steps to start the repossession process on...

    With energy prices set to rise to unprecedented highs, we are approaching one of the biggest geopolitical earthquake in decades. Carnage has already arrived in the developing world, with power outages from Cuba to South Africa. Sri Lanka is just one of a cascade of low-income countries where leaders face being driven out of power in an ignominious blaze of petrol droughts and loan defaults. In Europe and America, a technocratic elite system built on mythology and complacency is crumbling. People are left wondering why their leaders failed to make contingency plans, given that they sit on vast untapped reserves...

    It's been almost two weeks since protests began in Panama aimed at the high cost of everything from food to fuel to medicine. Teachers went on strike at first but other trade unions joined in leading to crowds on streets and highways with roads blocked including the key Panamerican Highway running through the middle of the Isthmus. Last weekend it appeared that labor union leaders and the government were cutting a deal to end the protests that were impacting the movement of food to Panama City where much of the country's population lives. The deal would have cut prices some...

    The Pan-American highway was cleared after heavy clashes between crowd control units and protesters keeping the highway closed. The National Police (PN) reopened the Pan-American highway on Tuesday, on the Santiago bridge, Veraguas province, to guarantee movement of the humanitarian corridor to the capital. The road was cleared after heavy clashes between crowd control units and protesters who have kept the road closed for more than two weeks. The demonstrators confronted the police units with stones. The police fired tear gas, managing to clear the road. Once the road was cleared, the circulation of trucks with supplies and food began...

    The term "pedestrian" has a derogatory meaning because peasants walked while nobles were "equestrians" and rode horses. The industrial revolution eliminated this class difference, as it did so many others, by making car ownership available to the masses until eventually Herbert Hoover was able to boast that "Republican prosperity has reduced and increased earning capacity” to "put the proverbial 'chicken in every pot' and a car in every backyard to boot." Democrats have spent two generations trying to get those cars out of every backyard. Biden is trying to bring back Obama's mileage standards that were estimated to raise car...

    President Biden made sure to emphasize that the action he was about to take was extraordinary. In late March, as the price of gasoline spiked, his administration threw open the spigot of the National Strategic Petroleum Reserve and began releasing a million barrels a day to, in the president’s telling, “provide a historic amount of supply” until domestic production could ramp back up.
