Loving my Chevy Volt. Wish they hadn't discontinued them, and I bet now they wish that too.
I get maybe one 7 gallon tank a month, unless we go traveling. But otherwise I get 40-50 miles on the battery, which is perfect for around town and other usual things. Just plug it in at night and fall in love with it again each morning.

Sorry Tucker, but that is patently, scientifically wrong.  Stop using words you apparently refuse to understand.

Americans are so far removed from the idea of what war is that they have a temper tantrum if they’re even slightly inconvenienced by higher prices. Imagine this attitude if the nation were physically attacked.
In fact, see how it plays out now as Russia/China simply says things on social media and half the nation (less now, since many have died) says “but a mask is so inconvenient! But I know more than the experts about mRNA and epidemiology because I saw a meme! Wahhhhh! Standing up to Russia is so hard!”
 
Really ?  You get all of that from this particular meme ?  

I was more like the CDC has been so wrong on so much of the Covid stuff that the masks could still have a real use, metaphorically speaking of course. 

The usefulness of masks other than the 95's has been so thoroughly destroyed by science (and established by OSHA decades ago, yet ignored) that the use of masks themselves are now an indicator of a paranoid person more than anything else, to me.  Wear the other masks and believe you are protected.  Fine with me.

I was told early on that if you want to test how effective a mask is, wear it going into a fish market.  If you can smell fish, fail.

Joe Biden’s Electric Car Plans Support The World’s Worst Humanitarian Abuses

BY TYLER DURDEN FRIDAY, MAR 11, 2022 - 11:00 PM

Authored by Tom Harris via RealClear Energy (emphasis ours),

In his State of the Union Address, President Joe Biden promoted electric vehicles (EVs), trumpeting his plans to establish “a national network of 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations.” In so doing, Biden is unwittingly supporting the worst humanitarian abuses in the world. This is because of the way in which the materials used in manufacturing the batteries that power today’s EVs are obtained.


A 1,000-pound Li-ion EV battery typically also contains about 30 pounds of cobalt. Cobalt ore grades average about 0.1%, so we need to process almost 30,000 pounds of ore to get 30 pounds of cobalt. With 50% of the world’s cobalt reserves, the Democratic Republic of Congo contributes almost two-thirds of global cobalt production. This is causing immense humanitarian abuses. Congo has at least 40,000 children—some as young as 4-years old—working with their parents for less than $2 a day. They are exposed to multiple psychological violations and abuse as well as significant physical risks. Engineer and energy consultant Ronald Stein and Todd Royal, an independent public policy consultant focusing on the geopolitical implications of energy, go into more details in their book Clean Energy Exploitations – Helping citizens understand the environmental and humanity abuses that support ‘clean’ energy”:

“Cave-in’s, constant exposure to toxic, radioactive water, dust, and dangerous air loaded with cobalt, lead, and uranium with other heavy metals breathed into lungs day-after-day so western citizens can feel good about their Tesla or wind turbine. Cobalt ore is sent to China since one of the larger mines in the Congo is Chinese-owned Congo Dongfang International Mining Company.”

A 1,000-pound EV battery also has 110 pounds of graphite. At 10% concentration, 1,100 pounds of ore must be processed for each battery. China is now producing about 70% of the global supply of natural graphite. Villagers living near graphite companies in provinces in Northeast China complain of “sparkling night air,” crop damage, homes and belongings covered in soot and polluted drinking water.

In his State of the Union address, Biden spoke of promoting “environmental justice” and “expanding fairness.” The president said, “I will be honest with you, as I’ve always promised.”

Biden must now be honest about electric vehicles. They grossly violate basic environmental justice principles and are anything but fair to the poor of the world who suffer and die so that wealthy western elites can virtue signal with their electric vehicles.

Speaking of gas prices, expect $15/gallon within eight years. I was on a city bus going to junior high in 1972, when a friend said his parents said that gas would be $1.50 next week. This was before the big price signs at gas stations, but we stopped and I could see the pump price was 62 cents. It didn't zoom up the next week, but I remember paying $2.60/gal in 1981.
 
A surprising aspect of this situation was that when I started car pooling with a co-worker, who happened to be an attractive young woman, our boss seeing us arrive together in the same car everyday assumed that we were having a love affair.

Psaki handles this nicely, no matter how many times the fox reporter attempted to inaccurately reframe the issue:

From WSJ: 

American shale drillers say there are limits to how much and how quickly they can boost shaky oil supplies following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, cautioning that supply-chain issues, investors wary of overspending, thinning inventories and other problems constrict growth.

Leaders of the fracking companies that helped make the U.S. the world’s top oil producer say they are responding to calls by the Biden administration and others to increase production after oil prices this week topped $130 a barrel and gasoline prices surged, threatening to dent the broader economy.

But the executives say that some investors, who felt burned after shale drillers gave priority to expansion over profits last decade and lost billions, are still concerned that the companies might spend too much if they return to rapid growth.

They also say that a flight of capital from the fossil-fuel industry in recent years has left U.S. oil patches without enough fracking equipment to bring a ton of new wells online, and that a resurgence of go-go drilling would deplete companies’ most valuable drilling locations.

Executives, officials and analysts say the extent to which shale companies will turn on the taps remains an evolving issue affected by the world’s escalating response to Russia’s attack. But they generally agree that the primary constraint is nuts-and-bolts limitations in America’s pandemic-battered oil patches, rather than regulatory constraints imposed by the Biden administration.
