Everyone is so afraid of what their energy bill/cost to fill at gas station/blah blah blah...but look at the bright side. All those cheap labor textile factories in china making those inexpenisve shirts/pants or whatever wont be so cheap to ship here anymore...therefore there will be a boom in our now practically defunct textile industry. Big companies like walmat will be crushed by those high fuel costs, in turn letting the little guy compete for business because he will buy from local vendors and save on fuel costs. The local vendors also get a big increase in volume since everyone will buy from the little guy now. The little guy now doubles his income and can easily afford the higher fuel costs. Everybody wins except the goliaths of the world. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. And since the goliaths of america all seem to get their cheap crap from overseas, the little guy will get his product from americans and help the economy with new jobs. I know some of you may come up with the theory that walmart will adapt quickly and buy from americans and deep discounts and still put the the little guy out of business...but since walmart has everything shipped to a central location in the US, their fuel costs are still goign to be high...only way they could compete would be for each walmart to individually buy from each local vendor in each town and they sure wont get a deep discount like they do now for that. I say let oil soar to 100 dollars a barrell and put the american textile industry back on the map. Please let me know what you think of my ramblings and if you see any flaws in it.
