$3.25 gal. is higher than a gal. of premium gasoline ($3.17) today.
In 4/07, #2 oil was $2.55.
In 12/06, it was $2.44.
People will be dialing back this winter, and not because Green Al Gore
toed them to.
My state, Delaware, is fighting New Jersey to prevent them from putting
a LNG depot on the Delaware river. It would provide enough gas for 14
million homes. They are also going to crucify us by putting in offshore
windmills for green electricity.
so you're for limiting the expansion of storage for new sources of
energy, and you're against new technology that is a source of cheap
non polluting energy, and you are complaining about the high cost of
energy, can you see what's wrong here?
Never argue with an idiot.
They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
People used to burn home heating oil in their Diesel cars and trucks.
Now it is the same or even more than Diesel at the pump- that has 40+
cents/gal tax on it. I switched to heat pumps from propane in 2000 and
haven't regretted it. How much is your propane? I haven't checked here--
imagine it is over $2.00/gal. I still have the propane for the cooktop,
and the furnaces which only fire up when the HP's go into defrost.

If I could afford the initial cost, I would have solar panels on my roof.
Funny, how all the proponents of renewable energy, and who make millions
of dollars per year, don't want to cheapen their mansions with solar
panels, with the exception of Julia Roberts, who has all the panels and
Does Al Gore walk the walk?
I'm OK with that, as long as one thing changes: If a company slobs up the
place by breaking laws surrounding drilling, the CEO of the company is taken
away in handcuffs immediately, just as if he'd shot a cop and it was
recorded on videotape. No white collar treatment.
You make it sound like drilling for oil is a major source of
environmental damage. In fact, the record of drilling without
signifiicant harm to the environment over the last several decades is
pretty damn good. Just take a look at the Gulf of Mexico, which
presents a far greater challenge than drilling in a tiny footprint on
land in ANWR. See any oil spills in the Gulf?? What happened during
Katrina? Many of the oil platforms were completely destroyed,
toppled over, sunk to the ocean floor. Did you see or hear any
reports of oil spills or leakage? No, because with current technology
it can be done with minimal risk.
Where has there been significant oil spills? From tankers
transporting oil, which is only more likely the more we import.
This big danger of drilling is just an environmental extremist myth,
perpetuated by radicals who are against every form of energy and
prefer to believe in fairy tails, like an electric car with no
emissions fueled by electricity just coming out of the wall in
Since you can't refute the claim that drilling for oil has been done
repsonsibly for decades here without damage to the environment, you
now want to talk about comparing it to murder? The specific comment
was the ban on drilling in ANWR, Alaska which is based on the false
premise that it can't be done without destroying the environment.
You're proposing draconian penalties for a problem that doesn't
exist. And those draconian penalties would just be another roadblock
to energy development and economic progress.
I agree that problems are rare. Read that again, and don't respond to it
**IF** problems are clear violations of the law, then there is no reason to
treat violators with kid gloves. It happens, though, because violators of
environmental laws tend to have friends in high places. You are fully aware
Then don't start fixing problems that don't exist. You sound like
the idiot politicians here in NJ. Instead of fixxing the real
problems of high taxes, huge waste and corruption they instead focus
on stupid nits. The latest is a bill to require auto insurance
companies to make the insurance ID cards smaller so they will fit
better in a wallet.
Kid gloves? LOL, you've obviously never dealt with the EPA. Bye the
way, you want the CEO taken away in handcuffs like a murderer if the
company "breaks laws and slobs up the place." How about if the CEO
had no involvement in the incident. Suppose someone on the site
did it without the CEO's knowledge? I guess that doesn't concern a
lib like you, cause it's a CEO, not a murderer. Following this logic,
if someone drives an HVAC truck and runs a red light and hits another
car, the owner of the company should go to jail.
For decades, the EPA has not been able to get General Electric to clean up
its sins in the Hudson River. Delays after delays after delays, and it's all
due to friends in high places. You know that.
The buck stops at the top. The fastest way to get answers is to haul the CEO
off his golf cart, like any other common criminal. We have what - 48 hours
to press charges or release a prisoner? That's more than enough time for
things to work themselves out.
