Replay of the 1970s?
Oil price increases = electric bill increases
Interesting correlation: In the 1970s, oil-fired power plants rightfully had to increase their prices. The OPEC-led oil embargo caused our home heating bill to rise. It seems the EXACT SAME things are happening today:
=> Republican President
=> Unpopular (unjustified?) war
=> Oil price spike
=> Electric bills increasing
I wonder... if (when) oil prices drop (for a little while), will we all just go back to sleep... and forget that we need to solve our energy problems, once and for all?
