Well, after a few week of sliding prices, the forecast of a cold winter and crisis-threatened supply briefly pushed the New York price for crude oil to $100 a barrel. Ouch. Here's a place for you to comment about your feelings: hope, worry, anger, what have you.
For what it's worth, Hubby and I try to minimize our use of oil, in part because we have better options and it surely will cost so much more. An example. Except for a short bus ride and a cold-weather-prompted three-mile cab ride, all of our travel in our Baltimore trip was either electrically powered -- Amtrak, tram and two subway systems -- or foot powered. I am modestly warm towards nuclear power, for what it's worth.
