Cameron’s own goal flop: gas prices in Britain have never been higher! ($8.11 per gallon)

29 02 2012

Just as a continuation to one of my earlier posts this week re: gas prices in the US, here is an example of what the Brits are paying for their gas right now…

Are we going to see these crazy prices on our shores soon?




Technical glitch hits Commonwealth ATMS

28 02 2012

Technical glitch…ummm.  Sounds a little fishy to me.  Might be a good idea to have some cold hard cash stored somewhere JUST in case of another glitch.  Let’s just say, I’m pretty sure this won’t be the last one….

Better to be safe then sorry…when one can’t access their own money, when they want to, one must take other precautions, while you still can.

Greek and NZ Debt Crisis is Linked! Evelyn Gilbert MR NEWS Counter-Spin Feb 23 2012

23 02 2012

I can’t say I’m clued up on the finer details of  what is going on in Greece at the moment, aside from the fact  that they are in debt to their eyeballs and the Greek people have had enough, hence the protests etc..

But, I must say, just listening to Evelyn speak about the austerity measures being implemented, one must think that the Global economy is not in a good place at present.

Gas prices soar due to tensions with Iran refinery closures

21 02 2012

I was sent this article link from a friend in the US this morning.  What we need to be thinking about, those of us living downunder, is if these are the exorbitant prices being paid in the US, then one only needs to wonder what we’re going to be paying here in Australia?

Bearing in mind that these price hikes are taking effect today, even before news of war in the Middle East between Israel, Iran, the US etc.

We must remember that the price of oil basically affects our everyday lives! Not just what we pay at the petrol pump, but our food, our jobs – EVERYTHING!

Take heed readers…might be time to start thinking of contingencies plans for your families.  Don’t get caught with your pants down!

Add to your plan, a trip to Supercheap Auto to buy a locking petrol cap for $21.99.  Expensive petrol can do some crazy things to our fellow citizens.  Might be a good investment, I think.

Video 2 – How will it affect Australians?

Video 3 – How to Prepare

I think the important point that Mr Swanepoel forgot to mention was to store food and water.  Yes, I totally agree about investing in precious metals to protect ones wealth, but you can’t eat your precious metals or your cash.

Food and water is what we all need for survival.  Inflation will most definitely hit, if not hyperinflation (in the case of the US and EU countries), and the price of food will be more expensive as compared to today’s prices.

With the threat of Iran closing the Strait of Hormuz to the Western world, this will definitely spike the price of oil, which means gas at the gas pump.

The price of petrol at the pump could rise anywhere from $2-6 a litre, overnight! That is the talk in the US at the moment. What price would Australians be paying?

Just imagine what these oil prices would do to the  trucking businesses who deliver our food to the supermarkets?  If they can’t afford the exorbitant petrol prices, what do you think will happen to the price of food?

I definitely agree with Mr Swanepoel to have cash on hand, in case of a bank run, to invest any extra cash into precious metals – but, in my opinion, we also need to store food items and water supplies for your families.  With thousands of Australians losing their jobs already this year, having to fork out money to buy food at higher prices, may already be a stress that some families could do without.

Like, I have been saying for a while now, we can prepare ourselves financially with cash and precious metals, but if we don’t have enough food and water in our homes to feed and sustain our families, all other preparations will be in vain.

As Mr Swanepoel alluded to, it’s better to be prepared, and either way, if things don’t turn out to be bad as predicted, (although, I believe that it will) then you haven’t lost out, in any way.

Take heed, have a look around and find out what is happening in the EU at present, keep an eye on Greece, the US and Chinese financial situations, and make the necessary precautions to protect your financial best interests and your families well being.

Coal Seam Gas in Northern Rivers NSW/QLD

9 02 2012

If you don’t know what Coal Seam Gas is, I recommend you watch a movie set in the US by Josh Fox.

I guarantee you won’t want this carry on happening in your backyard.

Food for thought….if “fracking” requires millions and millions of gallons of water each year to drill, how long is Australia’s water supply going to last for?

“Fracking” poisons the water, the air, the soil and everything in it, on it and around it!  Unless you live on the moon – this means, it poisons you, me our grandchildren, our great grandchildren and so on.
