Even for politicians, the lunacy of the Democrats on this is astonishing. They wonder why the oil industry won't rapidly increase its investment to add capacity (which is a long-term decision), yet at the same time they are cancelling oil leases and cancelling oil lease auctions. All of this signals Democrats' long-term animosity toward domestic production, and the industry isn't stupid.

Here's a weird one...at least it was a little weird for me.

Yesterday was my day to buy beer. Stopped at Publix, grabbed a case of Yeungling plus a few other items ** along with two gallons of milk. $2.39 a gallon.

As I'm loading the car a friend calls and asked me to pick up some for his grand kids. "No problem." $2.89 a gallon, 13 minutes later.

** $9.99 lb. Bone-in Rib-eyes.
$9.99 lb. Organic, free range chicken thighs.

Filled up my truck last night. Pump shut off at 100.00 on the dot. By my calculation, I should have been able to hold 2+ more gallons. Got me wondering if the machine only got an authorization for $100 on the swipe. Of course I thought of this after retiring the pump to its holster. I was too slow to try and see if I could squeeze more into the tank. Didn’t think I’d see a $100 tank of gas though. Good thing I didn’t have to pump premium or diesel.

I think it's determined by each merchant. Recently I noticed Parkers (home of the 28° beer cooler) allowed just at $85. They used to pre-authorize $75 on debit cards.

My Amex used to show a $150 charge every time I'd fill up, regardless of location, then would revert to the actual amount. Over the last week, it's been showing $200. I think it bumped up.
