EIA weekly, 4/17/09

Crude oil in storage is up to 370 million barrels. US consumption of oil is down over 10%, to just over 18 million barrels a day.

Aint got no more room. And 10,000,000 additional barrels a week need someplace to sit.

So this is still here

And I haven't had anything to say for almost 2 years.

Still don't. So I'll look back at the oeuvre.

I was wrong on natural gas- we were just about to ramp up into a new era of increasing production, & a major price crash. Looks like that era is going to end fairly quickly, because the increase was built on really expensive production.

I was right about the market about to crash. Big woop.

Tax seasons haven't gotten any better. Custodians just don't give a shit anymore.

Looks like 2006, or maybe 2007, was the peak for holiday traffic. 2006 was the last time we took a long car trip. Might take another in 2012.

I think I'll turn this into a cooking blog. Dinner today is a chicken & chickpea stew that'll take at least 2 hours. It also requires a lot of wine, a small amount of which may end up in the food.
