$1 a Gallon: a meditation

Some say this could happen in the very near future. I agree.

I am saddened the way our government allows energy to be traded and speculated upon when everything else in the economy is so critically dependent upon the availability and cost of energy. It really is a matter of national security that we become energy independent by whatever means necessary.

Many of us are learning the hard way that we simply don't need many of the things we foolishly thought we needed until now. Most of life's true treasures are right in front of you if you have the wisdom to appreciate them.

Save. Conserve. Never Waste.

The things you own end up owning you.
