I always read and research topics of interest to position myself for the future. Try to connect the dots, so to say. When I read this news story, then I really makes me think. The above article is the reason why I always suggest to people not to install gas stoves. Its why I suggest not to buy a new F-250. We all heard it... "There is more oil in the Alberta Tar Sands than Saudi Arabia". "Natural gas is cheaper than wood pellets." The future IS changing. Get ahead of the curve, the game is just beginning. Do not base any energy centric home improvements around current oil/gas/electric prices. Assume they may not be available for weeks at a time.
