Once again, gas prices are climbing and approaching all-time highs and that is good.
It is not good for the commuter, of course, especially those of lower incomes who, having to choose between medication for their children or gas to get them to their job, can ill afford to give up either. But it is good, nonetheless, for oil company executive and those of us who can peer into the future with the bigger picture in mind. And in fact, in the long run, it is better for us far-seers than it is for the short-sighted oil company executives.
This is, perhaps, a peculiar outlook for a lifelong Democrat, but it makes perfect sense as I shall explain.
