Looking for news tidbits to share with your non-prepper friends and family? As much as I despise the main stream media, I am never opposed to using their sometimes accurate headlines in order raise an eyebrow or two.
ABC News is reporting on the expectation of higher gas prices. According to Gasbuddy.com, gas prices nationally are hovering around $3.50 which is a first for the month of February. Of course we have seen these prices in summers past but never so earlier in the year. Some experts are even talking about $5 a gallon this summer. Keep in mind that whenever such extreme predictions are made, the naysayers come out of the woodwork to speak out in opposition…just ask Peter Schiff. In my opinion those predicting $5 per gallon greatly over estimate the US economy’s ability to absorb such price increases- meaning that household pocket books will be shattered long before we reach the horror of $5 gas. Predictions are like orifices, I know, and if you do plan to use this news as a tool to wake up your local sheeple (a term I use affectionately as JC referred to us as His sheep) be ye warned to prophecy with discretion.
- Tip for preppers: Store gasoline in a cool, safe location and rotate it as much as possible. For containers, bigger the better but consider mobility.
