Energy Prices Likely to Remain High Story
Alright. This is just plain annoying. We need alternative energy sources and we need them now. I propose that our federal government immediately cut off all aid to foreign nations and go through the bloated budget and cut all pork spending. Then, with all that money, invest in an alternative energy research endeavor that eclipses the Manhattan Project. At the very least, I would like to see a viable SEPS program within the next few years. Oil producers need to learn that if they want us to buy their product, they need to keep the price stable. SEPS would provide constant energy that always cost the same to produce. Such a situation is much easier to factor into a budget.
There is an amusing line in the article that I link to above: "How long before we return to normal [referring to gas prices]? It's hard to know, because we have not yet got an assessment"
Guess what, folks? We left what can be called "normal" more than a year ago. I don't think gas prices will ever return to normal. That's why we need look toward abandoning it as or primary source of fuel.
Our economy depends on energy. The instability of energy cost cannot be tolerated. We need new sources. I suggest SEPS, but I am open to other viable options. _____________________________________________
