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.



Coal Seam Gas in Northern Rivers NSW/QLD

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.
