Gas Prices Are About to
Hit New Lows

Time, by Brad Tuttle

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 10/3/2013 3:05:33 AM

A year ago, the post–Labor Day period was marked with rising prices at the pump thanks to a brutal hurricane season, among other factors. This year things are different, with prices remaining subdued even when concerns about strife in the Middle East dominate the news. (Snip) In fact, something unusual is happening that could cause gas prices to drop at a faster pace than normal for October and beyond. Among the many expected effects of the federal-government shutdown that began on Tuesday are a general slowdown in the economy and diminished demand for oil and gas. The price of oil

Comments:
And so - the gloom and doom of a shutdown touted by a tainted media may actually have a silver lining? Who´d a thunk it? And more importantly - who´s gonna report it?

Gas prices have been slithering down for quite some time now,to "credit" the shutdown is about as ludicrous as it gets. It was probably the Syrian deal which calmed the oil futures market down.It could also just be a lack of demand because of Obama´s sick economy.

It´s really headspinning how the media can take any story and use it a hammer on the republicans."The sun came up today,despite the hostile takeover of our government by a handful of extremist whackos."

Gas prices are still twice what they were the day that Obama was sworn into office, no matter how the liberal media tries to spin that issue.

Gas prices in this area were going down slowly. Until Obama started talking about bombing Syria, then they spiked. They started to slide again after the deal was reached to allow Assad to remain in power and keep his chemical weapons. They just dropped to where they were before the Syria mess started yesterday.

Right, "new lows", so long as your optics cover only the last 4.5 years. Gee, are WE the lucky ones? That Obama, he´s such a blessing. /contempt off/

It´s still $3.60/gallon where I live.
As previously mentioned, it was $1.86/gallon in January 2009. What´s changed since then? It´s Obama´s ´new normal´.

New lows for me would be under $0.17. When will we see that again. Get the headline right!

President Barack Obama was right when he said, “The long-term unemployed are not lazy. They’re not lacking in motivation. They’re coping with the aftermath of the worst economic crisis in generations.” He should know, his policies prolong the situation. From a promised minimum wage increase, to destabilization of the health care system, to an energy policy encapsulated by “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” no part of the Obama vision is about making America freer and richer. (Snip) Washington’s unreality has become offensive on a personal level, almost an affront to America itself. Washington is booming at

As House Republican leaders prepare an immigration proposal that could go much further towards amnesty than their prior public stances, conservative lawmakers are quietly plotting to push back. (snip) Officials close to the matter say conservative critics of Speaker John Boehner´s planned immigration push are working to issue their own rival immigration principles to vie with the document Boehner is drafting. “There is definitely a growing mood of confusion and aggravation among conservatives in the House over the immigration issue right now,” one House GOP aide said in an email to Breitbart News, adding that many on the right find

Where Have All the Uninsured Gone?

My last column referred in passing to a surprising fact that came out of last weekend´s Wall Street Journal: Somewhere between 65 percent to 90 percent of the 2.2 million folks who bought insurance on the exchanges through late December seem to be people who already had insurance. Some came to the exchanges when their policies got canceled; others came, voluntarily or not, from the employer market. (Snip) But where are the rest? We just created a giant new entitlement to take care of these people. Why aren’t they showing up to take advantage of it?

Washington — Amid the coverage of the Christie controversy and the latest budget deal, it was easy to miss the news about last week’s oral arguments before the Supreme Court in the case of National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning. And yet the Canning case represents the biggest threat to presidential power in decades, and the stakes in the decision are extremely high. (Snip) But what happens when we have a president from one party and a Senate majority from the other? The justices, in the oral argument, focused on the “originalist” fact that at the beginning of the

What would an opening ceremony in President Obama’s America (and hometown) look like? Probably all too much like the British–another glimpse of the sun setting in the West: An opening dance number featuring Julia leading Pajama Boy around a cheery Organizing for Action office; an alternative lifestyles choir singing “We Are

Clinton deserves Christie-level scrutiny

Time Magazine’s current cover depicts a tiny man hanging onto the heel of a shoe that’s emerging from a pant-suit wearing leg. “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” reads the accompanying text. Maybe, if the cover also showed her tripping over the Senate Intelligence Committee’s just-released report on the attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, while she was secretary of state. If New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must answer for four days of traffic jams on roads leading to the George Washington Bridge, surely Clinton has the same obligation to address a deadly assault that the bipartisan committee found “preventable.”

Gov. Cuomo to conservatives:

Gov. Cuomo has a message for conservative Republicans — you don’t belong in New York. Cuomo said Friday that members of the GOP with “extreme” views are creating an identity crisis for their party and represent a bigger worry than Democrats such as himself. “Their problem isn’t me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” the governor said on Albany’s The Capitol Pressroom radio show. “Who are they? Right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Holder’s terror surrender

Attorney General Eric Holder has reportedly decided to unilaterally disarm the Justice Department in the war on terror. Yes, in the interest of political correctness Holder will put this nation’s law enforcement units in handcuffs. Holder is reportedly considering expanding the definition of racial profiling in a way that would prohibit federal law enforcement agents of all kinds from considering religion and national origin in investigations — including, it would appear, in counterterrorism efforts and possibly surveillance. If indeed he follows through on promises made to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio(snip), Holder should quite simply be impeached.

It´s easy to forget now, but New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a hero to the Right during his first year in office. He became a fiscally conservative icon for pushing through a budget that focused on spending cuts, particularly to a bloated public sector. The governor tackled entitlements, reducing billions in scheduled pension payments. And he made his mark as an education reformer, aggressively challenging teachers´ unions, (snip) But at some point, he replaced his devotion to policy with a devotion to reelection. The cult of Christie went into overdrive after Hurricane Sandy hit, when he developed a politically

Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn announced Thursday night that he will be resigning his seat at the end of the year as he battles a recurrence of cancer. (snip) Coburn was first elected to Congress in 1994, as part of a wave of House conservative firebrands swept into office as part of that year´s GOP landslide. Like many of his freshman colleagues, he pledged to only serve three terms. Unlike most of his colleagues, he kept his word. He returned to Washington as a senator in 2004, handily defeating two prominent Republicans for the nomination and a highly-touted Democratic congressman who succeeded

Phoenix- The Maricopa County Republican Party has voted overwhelmingly to censure Arizona Sen. John McCain. Members of the group feel the senator has failed to stand behind the Republican Party´s principals and crossed the aisle and voted with Democrats too many times. The vote was 1,150 for the censure and 351 against. Here is the resolution as drafted by precinct committeeman Tim Schwartz: As leaders in the Republican Party, we are obligated to fully support our party, platform and its candidates. Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders. Today we are faced with both.

So who did cast the critical 60th vote for the Affordable Care Act, a?k?a “Obamacare”? Facing a new election year, the GOP has an answer ready to go: U.S. Sen. Al Franken, the Minnesota Democrat whose 2008 recount victory over Republican Norm Coleman helped alter the balance of power in national politics. (snip) But in a body of 100 senators, Franken is hardly the only contender for the distinction. Not to mention that in the end, the essential finishing touches of the health care law passed the Senate — thanks to some tricky legislative maneuvering — with a mere 56 votes,

President Obama has been losing his TV audience — literally. With the State of the Union proving ever less entrancing for viewers, the White House is desperate to turn the speech into a multiday event in an effort to bolster interest in Mr. Obama’s policies, even if people don’t tune in to hear his words. With online question-and-answer sessions, a “virtual road trip” scheduled for Friday and a presidential video, the White House is determined to spread Mr. Obama’s message beyond Tuesday night’s hourlong address. “Literally, the conversation never ends,” said Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell recalled on Monday some of the most impactful State of the Union addresses in the recent past, focusing primarily on George W. Bush’s post-9/11 speech in which he called North Korea, Iraq, and Iran members of an “Axis of Evil.” Mitchell ripped into Bush and former Secretary of State Colin Powell for approving that remark which alienated Iran, a country she said had been “more or less an American ally.” Washington Post reporter Chris Cillizza said that the “Axis of Evil” address was among the most important State of the Union addresses delivered in recent memory. “That

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to sign an executive order requiring that janitors, construction workers and others working for federal contractors be paid at least $10.10 an hour, using his own power to enact a more limited version of a policy that he has yet to push through Congress. The order, which Mr. Obama will highlight in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday night, is meant to underscore an increasing willingness by the president to bypass Congress if lawmakers continue to resist his agenda, aides said. After a year in which most of his legislative priorities went nowhere,

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX), who has been nowhere to be seen for almost three weeks, may have just turned up in London after a trip to Russia, according to Breitbart. Stockman, who submitted a last-minute longshot primary challenge to Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), has missed fifteen roll call votes since January 9, and has held nary a campaign event, despite drastically trailing Cornyn in the polls for an election in early March. Reporters trying to track Stockman down have been met with unresponsive campaign and congressional offices, though he appeared to have been located last week in Cairo, Egypt.

“Repealing and replacing” Obamacare with market-oriented reforms has been the Republican mantra for years now. If you’re a long-time follower of this space, you know that we’re skeptical that Obamacare will ever be repealed, GOP slogans to the contrary. Today, however, a trio of experienced Senate Republicans—Tom Coburn (Okla.), Richard Burr (N.C.), and Orrin Hatch (Utah)—have put forth the most thoughtful and constructive plan yet developed to repeal and replace Obamacare. The plan seeks to ensure that as many Americans have health coverage as Obamacare does. It’s a proposal grounded in the real-world tradeoffs that all serious reformers must make.

Former Vice President Al Gore raised eyebrows last week when he suggested that “fertility management” was the key to fighting global warming and promoting economic development in poor countries. Gore’s comments drew criticism from free-marketeers who said his remarks amount to “eco-imperialism.” “Gore’s agenda for saving the world from global warming has always included population control,” Myron Ebell, director of global warming and international environmental policy at the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Advocating population control specifically for Africa is just another form of imperialism.

A year after saying it didn’t matter what sparked the vicious attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Hillary Rodham Clinton is calling the incident the “biggest regret” of her stint as secretary of state.“My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi,” Clinton told an auto dealers conference in New Orleans on Monday. Clinton didn’t acknowledge any particular blunder in the days or weeks leading up to the 2012 siege that resulted in the deaths of four Americans.

It´s a good thing I remembered where I stored all my old ski gear, including the thermal underwear that I hadn´t worn in years. I´ve needed it during a season in which even the Deep South has seen an epidemic of frozen pipes, single-digit temperatures and school cancellations without snow. School kids were allowed to stay home for a day or two because, according to administrators, the weather was too doggone cold.

Sen.

Deep within the Earth, a fierce molten core is generating a magnetic field capable of defending our planet against devastating solar winds. The protective field extends thousands of miles into space and its magnetism affects everything from global communication to animal migration and weather patterns. But this magnetic field, so important to life on Earth, has weakened by 15 per cent over the last 200 years. And this, scientists claim, could be a sign that the Earth’s poles are about to flip. Experts believe we´re currently overdue a flip, but they´re unsure when this could occur. If a switch happens, we would be exposed
