$4 A Gallon Gas Is Here!

OK, maybe the headline is a BIT misleading.

$4 a gallon petro-diesel is here. I have been noticing that diesel has been about 75 cents a gallon more than regular unleaded for the last few weeks. Seems like diesel prices follow crude prices more than gasoline prices.

(PS - if you think that $3.999 is NOT $4 a gallon, buy exactly one gallon, pay with 4 one dollar bills and ask for your change...)

Good to know that white bread is still cheap.

White Bread vs. Diesel
 
It's not my favorite, but I can go 20 miles in an hour on 6 pieces. Say we can average 18 slices per loaf, that's 180 miles for $6. Beats any diesel.

If somebody can convert white bread into ethanol at a reasonable price, please give me a call.


I think it will be hard to beat the electro-chemical process of converting white bread to bicycle power though...

$6 takes this about 400 miles at about three times the speed. :thumbup:

The hit on Transporters
 
This has to hit the transportation segment like the ton of brick's they're hauling (or the "ton of feathers" GM's greenwashing commercial equates).

This trend is going to have a ripple-effect in more than us gasoliners. Diesel carries just about every product you see around to in some part of its journey.

But why?

Is there less of it?

Do they know Diesel cars may be hanging-on by thread of interest that could spin into tightly woven rope?

It is going to be even more expensive this summer.

The dollar's a droppin' and nearly half of the EU runs on diesel. Even shipping it across the Atlantic, they can pay more than we can. That's what socialized risk and privatized profit does for a country. The gubberment's inflating away the debt of itself and the private industries it bails out. :(

The dollar dropping like a rock because we just print money out of thin air and send it into circulation. 200 billion just a few days ago.

Couple that with the fact that they (the federal government) is probably going to be buying about $200 billion of worthless mortgage-backed securities from near-insolvent US banks with crisp new US currency.

You think the money in your wallet will be worth any more when they get done buying all that worthless stock with it? (not counting all you Canadians) :thumbup:
