Um... blink. blink. :? I don't think I understand the question.
BTW, I heard an interesting quip in a long but very good <a href="http://www.energybulletin.net/15440.html">presentation</a> by Rep Roscoe Bartlett: "Iím a conservative but I try not to be an idiot."
He also said (and I'm not on a political soapbox here) regarding the prospect of peak oil: "In an aggressive program, first is conservation." [The overall approach must be likened to] "World War IIís effort (victory gardens), along with the effort to put a man on the moon, and the Manhattan ProjectÖ the worst case is World War III. We face a hard landing, the 1930s will look good. Or it could be The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. - Albert Einstein
It's really bizarre that your prices are still going up like that! The national average has been about flat since 4/22. Oil prices have gone back above $74/barrel as of yesterday but still. What is driving prices in California that isn't impacting the rest of the nation?
