This morning on my drive into work I was listening to the news as I always do.  Yes, I know, I have become a geezer who listens to news instead of jamming with tunes for the ride, but I will address that point later.  What I heard on the news made me so mad that I thought I would share it with y'all to brighten up your days.  Oil producers are going to begin reducing the amount of their output now in order to drive up the cost of oil based products.  OPEC is worried the bottom may fall out of the market.  Normally I am the type of person who wants our Gov't to keep its nose out of business, however this time a line has been crossed and I will tell you why..............at least in my never to be humble opinion.  This "recession" that we are in has lowered production and closed many of our factories and businesses.  This, in turn,   reduces the amount of energy needed to produce fewer products and fuel peoples' commutes to work.  Dubya Geore W addressed the nation and asked us to do whatever we can to reduce energy costs and fuel use.  More people are car pooling and keeping their heat and ac at lower levels than ever in this country.  We are seeking alternative fuels such as biodiesel and ethanol.  What does this lead to?? OPEC announced that do to the dramatic reduction in the demand for oil they are forced to limit the production of oil to drive up its price.  What???  What kind of catch 22 frog fraken circle jerk cluster cluck of world are we living in?????  From now on I am going to take the long way to work and use both my AC and heat at the same time.  I am going to turn on every light I own and run all of my kitchen gadgets at once!   I encourage all of you to do the same thing because, in the long run, you may help bring down the cost of energy.........
