Go To The Gas Stations And Stock Up Now Because Things Going To Get Even Worse In The Months Ahead
BLACK BLADE: Topped off my diesel supply but I should stock up more. "Interesting Times" ahead ...The latest price increases are just one more supply chain issue facing the U.S. economy right now as prices on all kinds of goods keep going up. But instead of protecting our fuel reserves, we’re exporting record amounts of distillates even though we’re in the middle of a historic fuel shortage. In March, April, and May, exports of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel from the U.S. Gulf Coast were up by 32 percent compared to the same time in 2021, data from market-intelligence firm Kpler showed. To make things even more complicated, our aging power grids can’t handle the growing demand anymore. Last month, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation warned that we would face rolling blackouts this summer. Apparently, widespread power outages have already begun.
