Oil + Addiction = 50 Consecutive Day Price Hike in Gasoline

Oil AddictionGas Prices Rise for 50th Straight Day (CLICK HERE to read full article)

With 70% of our oil imported (much of it from countries with different human right beliefs), it is not very difficult to realize we are addicted to oil. Sure crude prices have declined dramatically from its peak of close to $150 per barrel to around $70 a barrel today, but nonetheless, gasoline prices have increased for 50 consecutive days (article above)!  The amazing streak can be chalked up to the incredible rise in crude oil prices in recent months from the low $30s per barrel. This 50 day streak would even make Pete Rose proud in light of his 44 consecutive Major League Baseball League game hitting-streak achieved in 1978. Next up, Joe DiMaggio’s 56 game streak (we’re almost there!).

Time will tell if currently more cost prohibitive energy alternatives can be efficiently implemented. However, if current gasoline price trends continue skyrocketing, then the economics and probability of realization becomes much more compelling. At this rate you may even see my pending hydrogen-solar hybrid car passing you on the highway fast lane!
