    $100 oil

    Hope everyone's been getting limber for ski season. We're all going to be bending over.

    I can't afford to ski lift served terrain due to the recent fillup of my heating oil tank
    Glad I bought a season pass last May saving up for one for next year is going to be tough this winter.

    Ski busses.

    I do my best thinking on the bus.

    This is such a total over reactionary BS maneuver today. Big deal, there's a short lived cold snap across maybe 1/3rd of the country, and voila oil jumps almost $4 a barrel before falling back a bit towards the end of trading. Big deal, it's North America, it's January and it's cold, quite a newsflash! The biggest B.S. move will be tommorrow when some gas station owner spikes the price .10 to .15 a gallon based on this, when the oil that was traded today isn't even close to the refinery that will finally turn it into what we'll use a fuel likely WEEKS from now!

    This is almost a perfect example of how modern technology/communications can be a BAD thing at instilling unneeded volitility in commodities markets!

    It's supply & demand.

    Greater world consumption + declining supply = higher prices.


    The tighter the supply, the greater the volatility.

    Temporary spikes can be fueled and amplified by reactionary market hysteria. But long term trends are fueled by supply and demand. Milestones are less notable for their longevity than they are for their perspective.

    I think we should all be grateful that we have King George to thank for awakening us to the fact that WE'RE the ones addicted to oil....
