How much are you willing to pay for gas and heating oil? $4 a gallon will probably be the norm for 2011. And where will this money come from for consumers? Unknown. We know government at all levels disregards thrift and conservation, but we as consumers must now figure out once again how to pay for skyrocketing energy costs. We know our government still can not figure out how to develop a comprehensive energy plan which would make our economy self sufficient. It only has had 37 years to do this, we really can not expect it to happen that soon. Natural gas shale, offshore oil drilling and a promotion of nuclear power are all fantasies to our mindless and economically illiterate government.
Thus for 2011 expect to pay much more for energy, even though we have plenty in our country which could be used. We know our elected officials have no thought for energy self sufficiency for our country. It would just make too much sense economically.
