From the comments about the price of energy.

Biden’s climate policies realized: New York’s ‘Home Energy Crisis’ – ‘More than a million households are 60 days in arrears on their energy bills, with an avg. of $1,427.71 in debt, & shut-offs are increasing’.

Heating oil is $6 a gallon, and it’s almost June. This should be the low for the season, ordinarily. If it’s the low this season, and people actually have to pay $6 a gallon for heating oil this winter, there will be widespread death – literal death – from cold, and incredible economic dislocation among anyone living paycheck to paycheck (and at this point, that’s the majority).

Heating oil is #2 distillate and is nearly indistinguishable from diesel fuel. And yes, my last tank fill a couple weeks ago was $1100. Interestingly, my online billing portal has my transactions going back a couple of years. in December of 2020 a fill was just over $400.

Right, exactly. So every word I see printed about diesel, I mentally add the words “…and heating oil.”

But because it’s warm out right now and because our journalists and politicians are unable to think ahead farther than 72 hours, nobody seems to be anticipating what $6 a gallon heating oil will look like, 20 weeks from today.
