Wrong way Ian

Florida doesn’t need rain. Central Texas does. Lake Travis is down 40 feet from normal, lakeside restaurants are closing partly due to the economy and partly since their lake view is now of a dirt ditch, and the foundations of homes are cracking due to the settling earth. Unfortunately, Hurricane Ian is going the wrong way. Drought, alas, is normal in Texas. Anything else is an aberration.

The Planned Gas Collapse

Gas and other energy prices are going to be much higher folks, thanks to the Lyin’ Biden administration, plus the Russia-Ukraine war. Which, according to EPOCH Times analyst Joshua Phillipp, was a freebie on top of an intentional war on all fossil fuels. To eliminate them and replace them with solar and wind, and electric cars, in the name of saving the world from climate change. As if humans could change the climate.

Gas prices

Are headed to $10 a gallon. That will hurt many. What will hurt all of us is when the price of diesel hits $10 a gallon. Everything moves by train or truck.

UPDATE: Diesel is $9.19 a gallon in L.A. Hold onto your hats! Via James Woods on Twitter.

Cataract windup

Met with the surgeon the other day who said everything looks good with my eyes and I can proceed to get new glasses. Ordered a regular prescription pair and prescription sunglasses for a whopping total of $2,000. How much of that is inflation? Will see the surgeon again a year from now. Meanwhile, Barbara Ellen will start with her cataract eye exams in a couple of weeks.

UPDATE: She passed. No cataracts. Just needs new glasses.

“Incredible transition”

Even Lyin’ Biden tells the truth now and then.

“[When] it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said.”

Or, even more hopefully, you will be gone long before that happens. Though millions will be impoverished along the way. Who’s he working for? It sure ain’t us.

More limits on drilling

Lyin’ Joe proves, once again, that he isn’t really trying to solve inflation, or high gasoline prices, but strengthening them with new limits on Arctic drilling.

“The White House announced on Monday that it’s reverting back to the Obama administration’s policy of opening only 52% of Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve for oil and gas leases. Under the Trump administration, 82% of the land was open for drilling.”

Which is partly why under Trump regular gas cost about half what it does now.
