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.

    Fred, thank you. That's more or less what I wanted to know.
