    Diesel hit just under $4. here in massachusetts today, the barrel jumped to $105. so expect prices to be well over $4. very soon. I imagine asphalt prices will be insane this spring.

    It's only going to get worse. OPEC won't produce more oil. Demand will increase this summer. We don't have any alternative but to keep paying. I saw some guy on TV a while back and he said " at 100 dollars a barrel we would be paying 7 or 8 bucks a gallon for fuel." One things for sure. It will NEVER go down.

    It's the Devalued dollar that's killing us as much as anything else, oil reached a record high today and the dollar reached a record low......not good. Whoever inherits the Presidency, inherits a mess.

    One thing you need to know in the land down under, If America falls into a economic reccesion or goes into a depression the whole world feels the economic impact, if Austalia fell into the sea the only thing the world would miss or even feel is the loss of Fosters Larger beer! Good day mate
