Why's Gasoline So Expensive?

I've thought long and hard about why fuel is getting so expensive, trying to find a way that comforts folks while informing them of the real story. Like anything in life, of course there are many reasons. Everyone's upset at Exxon-Mobil, or Bush, or the government in general, or speculators...anyone but themselves. Without going into too much detail myself, I'll let someone else tell you.

There's a really good new blog by a guy named Robert Rapier writing for R-Squared. Check him out, he knows his stuff. He's got a recent posting called "Another Uniformed Consumer Watchdog" that I think delves into the issues in a way anyone could understand. You still might be upset but hey, it is what it is.

Another blog I read regularly (and have mentioned before) is The Ergosphere. Coincidentally, Mr. Rapier references it, and "Engineer-Poet" references The Ergosphere. There's a nice piece entitled "Conservation Is Not the Whole of Security" that I think you'll appreciate.

Thus, great minds do appear to think alike. Thanks gentlemen, you're doing a valuable service to us all.
