Better watch out, looks like we're headed up at the pump again. Price of oil up $7 a barrel since last night. Gas is up another five cents a gallon.

Well said on the luxury trucks. Wanna be buddies?

It's true that lower pump prices channel more money into our pockets, but the last I saw was that something like 60 percent of our additional cash is going into paying down debt and into savings. Both are great, but tend to moderate the additional cash we put into consumer spending. A bigger impact on the economy is what happens in the oil patch, primarily North Dakota, the Permian Basin, and some operations in other states. Nationwide, permits for new drilling have nearly stopped. Low prices are already forcing many smaller higher cost shale firms to scale back or cease operations, and no one knows what will happen to fracking. The ripple effect will probably spread to railroads, truck drivers, hotel maids, waitresses, etc. No one knows how far it will go. Hopefully it will not lead to too much of a downturn, but there is a lot of uncertainty here. Also, we don't know how far Saudi Arabia will go to force all shale out of business, which is certainly their goal..

Modify your vehicle to get better mileage my friend, especially if you have the money to do so. The right tires can get you as much as five percent better mileage while they're on the car, that more than pays for itself as they're a necessity to have.

Gosh, Omega Man, Galaxy Quest, Timeline, so many I'd like to see.

You know, looking back that the previous message I posted here, life was even better for the poor AND homeless as well. They were invited into more homes and people gave them more when they had nothing. That's NOT the case today. I truly hope you had a good Christmas and have a great new year. Wish I had started to send out the message earlier, but I can only do so much some times. I'm limited by time, money and other factors. You just don't know. But you will one day when I tell you and others about it all. Later!

And, yes, you're absolutely right, we'll never see the heydays of the 60's and those WERE good days and we did have plenty of REAL jobs, though there were always poor and homeless people back then as well. But life was better then for most of us and most people I met then, young or old. Maybe one in 100 had it really bad here back in those days, but now I know well into the double digits who have it bad out of 100 people. I did manage to get gas, premium gas for a co-worker last month for 11 cents a gallon, because of Winn-Dixie's fuel perks. If you have them there, sign of for the rewards card, and the same with Kmart, Big Lots and all the rest you can. Even with Kmart you can get 30 cents off a gallon, and it pays to shop at those places to enable better savings. You'll never get it at Walmart or Target alone as some are now learning.

Funny that you don't like DS9, and I've never seen Omega Man or Galaxy Quest OR Timeline, but I sure will now.
