"So we are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy."
Usama bin Ladin -- November 1, 2004
"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened."

During the 1973 oil crisis gasoline was a precious commodity. Locking gas caps became a must and it was not uncommon to see police guarding gas stations or armed gas station owners
While we may not end up with serious shortages we do expect oil and gasoline to become a very expensive commodity.
Expensive commodities invite theft and crime. Be prepared.
Alternate energy sources are troublesome and expensive. While they are not economical to install today it will be to late when blackouts become commonplace.
When considering alternate energy, think small and think basic. Large emergency generators will be useless when you canít get fuel.
Consider solar, wind and batteries to power camper sized appliances.
Still own a gas guzzler? Sell it or trade it before the price of gasoline goes up and the carbon tax is imposed.
New cars are deeply discounted. Used cars are a bargain. Driving about 10,000 miles per year? Aim for over 25 miles per gallon. Driving more than that? Aim for better fuel economy.
Remember, big SUVís will turn into pumpkins when the price of gas goes over $5.00 a gallon.
A good place to start:
Cars & Trucks
Follow the money but be careful!
Wind and solar energy seem like a great investment, but, companies still have to make a profit and that may be years away.
New taxes may temporarily curb oil and gas use.
Watch the growth countries "BRIC": Brazil, Russia, India and China. These countries are investing in real energy and will end up with most of the industrial production we will loose.
