I really don't know a thing about marco issues like this, so I figured I'd ask some people that might. With cracking higher today, it makes me wonder... at what point to do people say, "Hmm... I think this is going to start hindering any hope of a recovery. Maybe the future isn't so bright." I just don't understand it. It seems like high priced oil is going to slaughter the US consumer, but no one seems to care. Green shoots!! Bid oil higher!! And is it me or is the price of retail gasoline higher vs. the price of oil than it was last year. We've been in the $70-75 range on oil, and gas (87) around here is $2.90/gal. I could have sworn we didn't hit that high of a gas price until $80-90+ oil last year, I could be wrong.
