Gasoline Demand; Carpe Diem; Unpacking Boxes, Reminiscing Through Photos -- June 2, 2016

Gasoline Demand (dynamic link here):

The 4-week average increased just slightly below 4% year-over-year. We continue to get closer to the 10 million bopd threshold, which I believe, would be a record.

 Other Blogs

Last night I had the opportunity to visit some of my favorite blogs. One of them is Mark Perry's Carpe Diem, once a stand-alone, now part of AEI. Look what Mark wrote last night: "A 'hat tip' to Warren Meyer of the Coyote Blog who originated the Venn diagram approach to highlight intellectual inconsistencies.

If readers have any suggestions for blogs I might like, please feel free to send me suggestions.

I get some wonderful long "essays" in private e-mails from some readers. I may not reply to all of them, but I get to most of them.

A Note To The Granddaughters

We were stationed in Turkey back in 1994 or thereabouts. After leaving, there were a few boxes we never got around to unpacking. Between that move from Turkey to our most recent move one month ago, some unopened boxes made a half-dozen more moves: Turkey to Prattville, AL, to Langley AFB, VA, to San Antonio, TX, (three different locations/three moves) and then to DFW area (two different moves.

We finally opened the last of those boxes. We now have a few boxes in storage but they are new, mostly books.

We numbered all our boxes when moving and placed an "inventory" on the outside. The numbering was by room/location. So this was Box #3 from the storage closet. It included memorabilia from Williston's centennial celebration (1989) and darts from England, where we were stationed in 1990. The F-15 Eagle plaque from our first (1983) tour or our second (1991) tour at Bitburg AB, Germany.
