Making Sense of The Skyrocketing Cost of Gasoline

Posted by Larry Doyle on September 17th, 2012 7:33 AM |

I guess I could write this morning about the NYSE being fined by the SEC for facilitating front running. I could also offer more commentary on global banking institutions that now seem to realize a little thing called “reputation” actually matters. Perhaps I could offer insight on how the Fed’s recently announced “QE-infinity” is directed as a further bailout of the banks and the red-headed stepchildren commonly called Fannie and Freddie.

But let’s put those topics off for another time. Today, let’s address why your wallet is significantly lighter every time you go fill your vehicle’s tank.  (more…)

This interview is lengthy but riveting. For those interested in the markets, our economy, and our future, it is a MUST READ!!  (more…)
