Same supply, lower demand, prices go down to keep the supplier from losing money. They want to keep a cash flow, even if it’s break even. U.S. supplies are up? More permits and drilling, including fracking on private land, government public permits are down.
Kudos to President Obama for his energy policy that has resulted not only in the United States becoming a net exporter of petroleum products, but has also given us a major drop in oil prices with gasoline now selling for well under $2.50 a gallon. OPEC is reeling thanks to him!

John Steinbeck was one of America’s most prolific and insightful novelists.

It is a penetrating little book called “The Pearl.”

Freedom is a value we seek. We hold it as a right in the United States. We want it in our personal lives, even our professional lives. We hope to have it in our retirements and to pass it on to our children. Because we live fast-paced lives with rampant technological change, freedom often means we seek convenience. When things are convenient they seem to more readily fit our schedules. When something is convenient, it seems to help us gain some freedom of time or effort. Drive-thru fast food restaurants, cell phone providers, and other businesses seek ways to serve us in the most convenient fashion. We desire freedom and, therefore, want convenience because it promises us better results to live in this fast-paced society. Convenience buys us time and gives us freedom.
