So Close! But A New All-Time Record Set -- Gasoline Demand -- August 10, 2017

So close: four-week average for gasoline demand, almost matching last year's number. Most recent four-week number:
  • 2017: 9.763 million b/d
  • 2016: 9.776 million b/d
  • delta: 13,000 b/d -- wow

But, we did hit an all-time record of gasoline demand on a weekly basis for the first week in August (not an all-time record for any week, but an all-time record for the first week in August):

Gasoline demand flirts with new records despite all those EVs being sold in the US and all those new CAFE standards.

Lego replaces its 61-year-old Brit Bali Padda after just eight months on the job. Wow. Lego replaces him with a digitally-savvy Dane. Story at The WSJ. This comes in light of Lego's growth slowing, slipping behind Mattel as the world's largest toy company.

Chicken or egg?

Does mainstream media frame "The Drudge Report" or the other way around?
