Crude Oil Price Hits $120

Crude oil from the “light end of the barrel” hit $120 this morning. Forget what Bernanke and the MSM are telling you. They keep showing the WTI price. Even supposedly smart guys like Mark Zandi have said recently that $100 oil is not a problem for the US. Wrong. The US needs light crude for the gulf refineries. And consumers will be paying $4 a gallon before Zandi or his pal Bernanke can catch their breath.

    There are so many answers to that question Philip that I won't try to formulate one of them. I think though that you should direct your question to the author of the above note. However let me suggest that you do as I am doing, which is to continue to look closely at the WTI price. If that is 100 or over, then we are definitely in trouble again.
