$4 in June, $5 in July, . . . . (May 26, 2008)

$4 a gallon in June, $5 in July, $6 in August . . . . or October?  Speculators and hoarders may be distorting the market somewhat.  The real problem, of course, is one of supply and demand, too little of the former and too much of the latter.  Our global addiction is growing along with the number of new addicts.  Citizens of the world are voting daily in the world’s global voting booths – the maternity wards of the planet.  Those little mouths will consume their daily supply of unrefined bread and refined oil.  They say that if the rest of the world consumes like a typical American (which they are and will), we will need to colonize three more planets.  However, the last census concluded that there is only one planet.  For over a third of a century, since at least 1973, the world has been on notice that oil is finite.  Little has been done to reduce the luster of and lust for oil.  Seems like the time to act?
