    Seems oil is headed right back down. Surprise, surprise, it looks like the Saudi's will be getting back online a little sooner than expected. :)

    Many natural gas and electric transmission stations and water plants are protected only by chain link fence. A truck loaded with explosives could take these facilities out. A few jihadists with a meager budget could pull off attacks that would cause what terrorists die to create: fear.

    Which begs the question...if it's so easy to do, why haven't they done it yet?

    It does beg that question, and I don't have an answer. That doesn't change the fact that our energy and water facilities are vulnerable. If such attacks do happen so service is shut down to metropolitan areas, especially with power and natural gas, much suffering and disorder will occur.

    While stations around north Austin have jumped from 15c to 20c, Costco here went from 2.01 to a whopping 2.03! :) Love Costco. Glad to see them not price gouging!

    Gasoline went up 40 cents per gallon here in Louisville, KY today. It sucks.

    I got gas this morning about 10 and it was $2.19 a gal for unleaded reg. An hour later it was $2.29 at the same station. It had gone from $2.25 to $2.50 in several other stations since yesterday.

    When I went past the gas stations today, ot was still at $2.49 9/10, just like last week. Usually they jack it up a nickle or more if somebody sneezes.

    More worried about heating oil this winter. If/when Saudi retaliates and there is a problem with shipping in the region is when the prices will go up bigly.

    Many (dare I say most or even all) of the massive transformers in the electrical grid are currently only available in China.

    You don’t think any of those 100s of thousands of illegal aliens coming in from Mexico to sanctuary cities around the country are Iranian or other Muslim terrorists, do you?

    Doesn’t matter the circumstances or reasons, gasoline prices seem to jump 10 to 20 to 30 cents at a time but ooze down one or two cents per day.

    Didn’t Iran supposedly capture one of our more sophisticated drones intact?

    Only takes one round of ball ammo from a M1 to take one out of action for a long, long time. I was worried about that on a couple power plant jobs I did in north east Spain by Bilbao where the Basque separatists (ETA) were a problem.

    I keep thinking we are due another attack, but I guess they like the internal political turmoil and don’t want to give cause to unite, again.

    I think it is more, we have pretty much killed everybody who is anybody and the new everybody’s are pretty busy keeping one eye out for hellfire missiles, to be planning anything big.
