I am in NY and wonder how I’ll pay my heating bill with diesel skyrocketing. We have a diesel shortage fast approaching in the Northeast, and no Democrat in the Oval Office is doing a thing about it. Rationing has begun.
We have had nice weather here, in the 60s most days. It’s warm for November. What happens when winter hits? Diesel was $5.59 yesterday. This is a huge tax on the middle class.
RATIONING HAS BEGUN
Bloomberg says that the rationing of heating oil is already underway. It’s November, not winter. Stockpiles are at 30 percent of their normal levels and going down fast. Some reports say we have roughly 20 days of diesel left.
The diesel shortage that had the White House on edge last week is spreading from the Northeast to the Southeast, prompting at least one supplier to initiate emergency protocols.
“Because conditions are rapidly devolving,” fuel supplier Mansfield Energy now is now requiring a 72-hour notice for deliveries to secure fuel and freight, according to a customer note. In tightest areas, fuel prices are running 30-80 cents higher than the market average, Mansfield said, adding that Tennessee is “seeing particularly acute challenges.”
“At times, carriers are having to visit multiple terminals to find supply, which delays deliveries and strains local trucking capacity,” the note said.
Expect prices to soar. Thank a Democrat.
DailyMail reports that Chris Herb, president of the Connecticut Energy Marketers Association, said that heating oil wholesalers are limiting allocations to retail suppliers:
The rationing measures intended to prevent panic buying and hoarding are imposed on consumers, limiting the amount of heating oil they can purchase.
TWO YEARS TO DESTROY THE NATION
In only two years, Democrats ruined our energy independence and destroyed retirements, savings, and freedom. Somehow it’s the Republicans’ and Trump’s fault if you believe the media and Joe Biden.
Democrats are bringing us back to the Stone Age, but other than that, they are doing a great job. I now know there is no definition for a woman.
Biden’s assault on fossil fuels now leaves us with just 25 days of diesel supply.
This crucial fuel is used for transporting goods, farming, and military vehicles.
He is putting America Last and bringing us back to the stone age. https://t.co/Z0GwkqHg4Z

“This is a huge tax on the middle class.”
and for the poor, the homeless and the aged….
And yet, despite all this, they’ll be blaming the oil producers and not this administration for their failed policies.
New York is a Democrat State. They decided Democrats knew what they were doing. Sorry, Ms. Dowling, but you should have moved to an Energy producing Red State! Maybe if a Million Liberals freeze to death this winter, Liberals might get a Clue. I can see a situation where Energy States just stop shipping to Blue States to keep their people warm for the Winter, because transportation to the Northeast is too problematic. Northeastern States have done everything they can to stop pipeline construction. With limited pipeline capacity, the Electrical Grid is at risk. A Winter Grid Collapse like in 2003 would be catastrophic. The SPR is quickly being depleted. This winter is going to suck! Next winter is going to be much, much worse. You can thank Traitor Joe and his friends along with a Worthless Congress! A New Congress can’t fix Traitor Joe’s Stupidity in just 1 year. Think in terms of 6 to 10 years.
6-10 maybe some improvements, but until the schools change…and kids learn how to think instead of memorising senseless propaganda, maybe never.
I think Parents have realized that most teachers are dumb as dirt which is why they teach. I’m seeing more people trying to send their children to private schools and a lot more talk about State Wide Vouch Systems that allow parents to send their children to Private and Parochial Schools. Why is it that my State spends over $9600 a year for a Public School Student and I can send my Daughter to one of the Best Private Schools in the State for only $6000 a year? There are Parochial Schools that cost less. Where is all that Public Tax Money going in the Public School System and why do the Public Schools produce so many Morons? Could be the Culture Warrior Training, the Promotion of Gender Dysphoria, or just the lack of Discipline? If you have low expectations, you get piss poor results, but Public Schools seem to have NO expectations.
