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.

“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.

Gas thieves

Damn you, Biden. Someone smashed daughter’s window on the driver’s side, while she was at work, so they could pull the lever that opens the gas tank door. Then they siphoned off most of the gas. $38 worth, thanks to Biden and his Dimocrat Party. As the gas price keeps going higher more of us will suffer this behavior.

Musk: Own physical things

Billionaire Elon Musk has advice for his millions of Twitter followers in a time of high inflation and gas prices: “Musk advised his 77.8 million Twitter followers to own ‘physical things like a home or stock in companies you think make good products’ rather than dollars when inflation is high.”
