The Petroleum Situation

First, I know it's been a while since I posted but I've had a lot to think about. I also appreciate the e-mails and can see some people have commented on my posts. I hope an open dialogue is being created out there.

That said, let's get back to petroleum. I asked someone's advice recently about the petroleum situation and here's what she told me: Back in the 30s, there was drought; there was no crop, no olives, no soul of life and no rabbit in the oven. People mashed the locusts and made bread.

I don't get it.

The petroleum situation wasn't created by nature like the drought, or the olives or any of that, it was created by people who act like nothing's happening when it's in fact causing lots of problems.

Okay, forget petroluem. I have three questions for everyone reading: Why is it that people only ask themselves deep questions when something really bad happens, and then they forget all about it later? How come people are self destructive? I refuse to use petroleum but there's no way I can stop its use in my lifetime, is there?

By the way, the price of oil dropped to $42.77 today. Hard to believe it was as high as $49 just a little over two weeks ago. Will it go higher or lower as we approach this election? Also, I did get some new tires for my bike.
