This One Chart Says It All
I know it is often really tough for preppers or survivalist to stay the course. The signs and directions can be so obvious but the pace getting there can take so long that you often question if it is even worthwhile to prep. Believe me I know.
Sometimes you wonder if you are prepping for yourself or for the great great great grandchildren you will never meet.
Many of us manly types lose our testosterone as we get older than the next thing ya know we are being carted off to an old folks home in Florida so family members can have easier access to the shopping centers and all our years of prepping go up in smoke.
Ya that was a shameless potshot let's see if the target notices.
Well Ladies and Gentlemen, friends and patriots I am here to tell you even if you happen to live near wealth redistribution central (IE Washington) or one of it's well to do satellite cities and cannot see how the very life is being sucked out of fly-over country with your own eyes, the chart at this link should tell you all you need to know.
U.S. Total Gasoline Retail Sales by Refiners
If you can find a month with less total retail gasoline sales on the chart that is lower than December 2013 my hat's off to you.
I don't think that chart has done anything but decline each month since April 2009 if I am not mistaken.
The bottom is falling out of this cheap energy, big government, Multi-Cult love fest fast. Just in time deliveries and cheap abundant food are soon going to be much more shaky and expensive. Your prepping and self sustainable efforts are not in vain as that chart clearly shows.
Our government can screw with some numbers. They can pay the cheerleaders to scream recovery and pretend all is well but our economy runs on fuel and that's one number they cannot change.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
