Will Diesel Shortages Leave North Dakota Shelves Bare?
Diesel fuel has been the headline across news channels, press conferences, and talked about endlessly on social media. The Simple suggestion is that if there is no diesel fuel, no trucks. No trucks, then of course supposedly no goods on the grocery store shelves. The same antics of issuing reasons for worry, stress, and anxiety always seem to stem right around Midterms (or elections in general), and with the 2022 Midterm Elections on the horizon, Tuesday, November 8th, 2022, this too should be no surprise.
News broke across the country back on October 14th that the United States has only a 25-day supply of diesel. Claiming that if a change did NOT occur, around Midterm Election Day the nation would see trucks parked.
Zero Basis Solutions
The current administration claims to have a solution, and what's crazier is that states such as California, New York and others often echo this same theory that electric cars have "zero emissions" and that they are a solution. Click on this link, you'll quickly understand too why our North Dakota common sense can see that what is being sold is truly falsehood.
Coal, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas
When is the last time you can remember ever hearing of something produced, built or created, unless a vegetable to be eaten directly from the garden, that didn't utilize these components to at least be originally engineered Energy is created by electricity that is required to manufacture anything we purchase today on a shelf, or here's another thought, what are tires made out of? Automation is all around us, there is rarely an action taken that has not required more than one's bare hands. Again, ask oneself regardless of stances from the past, one thing we learn, and acquire throughout life is common sense, and we understand completely that some of that is learned the hard way. The thought going into "Clean Energy" the current administration is toting is even leaving out the simplistic thoughts. Read this story that CBS Morning reported coming out of Minnesota.
Our final thoughts, business will remain as usual. Will we plan for continued inflation as it affects our lifestyle budget. We do not foresee our shelves bare here in North Dakota from this latest "News Buzz". But then what do we know, we only think ahead going into winter regardless, and already have stocked our shelves with supplies to outlast blizzards as we do statistically know they occur almost every winter. We wish you all health, happiness and warmth in the coming months.
