Gasoline Prices Expected To Rise About Ten Cents/Gallon January 1, 2015

Enjoy record low gasoline prices for about 24 more hours. Starting January 1, 2015, the Federal Cap and Trade Act (real name: American Clean Energy and and Security Act / Waxman-Markey bill) will add about 10 cents/gallon of gasoline. The act was passed in 2009.

Obviously, the actual cost of gasoline will vary from location to location based on many factors; this is simply what some analysts are predicting and they could be really, really wrong. It's very possible gasoline in your neighborhood might even decrease. LOL. If this information is important to you, find another source. Don't rely on this blog.

A Note to the Granddaughters

Your grandmother asks me a stupid question several times daily. I try to ignore her or the question. She's pretty insistent until she gets the answer. Drives me nuts.

Today, "Ms Negativity" asked why they drop a ball on New Year's Eve. She got a bit angry when I told her what I tell when you when you don't know the answer to something:
  • follow the money;
  • ask "why now"; and/or,
  • google it.
The first two (follow the money and ask "why now") didn't seem appropriate.

Googling, wiki:
A time ball or timeball is an obsolete time-signalling device. It consists of a large, painted wooden or metal ball that is dropped at a predetermined time, principally to enable navigators aboard ships offshore to verify the setting of their marine chronometers. Accurate timekeeping is one means by which longitude can be determined at sea.
Although the use of time balls has been replaced by electronic time signals, some time balls have remained operational as historical tourist attractions.
So, there you have it.

Having said that, still has the Bakken wrong. Very, very wrong.
