I got my class III licence at the old Trevose state police barracks in 1987. Back then diesel fuel was .30 cents cheaper than regular gas. (remember regular gas) Then about 15 years ago the (I hate to get political on you all) the government decided that we all have to use a new invention called lsd. (No you stupid hippie it's not acid) it's low sulfur diesel. amazingly diesel became a little more expensive than gas. I don't know why but early last year diesel suddenly became .80 cents more than gas. I wonder if the government in it's infinate wisdom decided that we need to now use ultra low sulfur diesel has anything to do with it? Last thursday I put 141.026 gals in my truck I (my company) paid $602.04 for it!!!!
At my job I see trainloads of ethanol all day long go by. This year the U.S. stopped exporting corn and wheat. we are burning all of our food in our cars!!!! People all over the Third world are now beginning to riot in the streets because of food shortages. Those of you fine ladies and gentlemen who met my wife and I last year at the Coal berners and beer fest
in Pottsville Know that I Have an asian wife. In the Philippines there are shortages of rice and other staples. The price has gone from 19.00 per kilogram to 37.50 I am all to happy to subsidise my inlaws, however I cannot feed the world. Over there 2 years ago people could not afford to buy rice now the threat of starvation is very real.I have been there many times and it's just like on the tv commercials with the little girl. Hunger is becoming a major problem. As beef, milk, pork,chicken, cereal, and yes even beer
go up, we can afford it they cannot! Other crops are getting more expensive due to farmers planting corn instead of soybeans wheat or hay.All this is is because the government makes us burn our food due to the great hoax called global warming. P.S what are all of the tree huggers going to do when they find out That we are cutting down the rain forrest to make way for corn production.
