Did you know that our neighbors to the north are energy independent? They meet their own needs and sell their excess to foreign nations. I was so impressed to hear this. Becoming energy independent is a promise that both presidential candidates are making. But guess what! Canadians pay more per gallon of gas at the pump than we do down here.
I heard this on a radio show about energy and oil prices. I was surprised to hear that the price of gas has nothing to do with who happens to be president at the moment. The president’s influence is pretty much zero, nada, zilch. Gas prices, I learned, are driven by forces outside of any one nation’s influence. So much for either Republican or Democrat blaming the other party or taking credit for gas prices as they rise and fall.
I filled my tank at the gas station last night. The prices are really dropping. I don’t know who to thank for that.
