It’s no secret that energy prices are completely out of control and the situation is only getting worse. …OPEC recently announced planned cuts to oil output.
The Saudis have snubbed America, in a historic first, and are breaking away, the dollar is losing its dominance in global energy trade, and the world is tired of the federal government’s international antics. …
Russia is a major energy-exporting nation. Beyond this, virtually every other energy-producing nation is in similar straits as Russia—terrified and angered at the sudden possibility of U.S. ‘democracy’ coming to their shores.
Could there have been a worse move than to enter into a proxy war with Russia at this current point in history?
Energy prices have more or less remained high and they seem to be spiking once again—gasoline just hit a recent 5-month high, according to President Trump:
To make matters worse, our strategic petroleum reserves are depleted, so we can’t rely on their use or sale to put downward pressure on the price of gas.
Here’s what everyone is saying about the soaring cost of energy in the United States:

Washington Examiner shared this story:
Some of the highest prices are seen in more affluent communities like Scottsdale, where the average is $4.96 as of Monday.
This is slightly higher than the Los Angeles-Long Beach area of California, where drivers are paying an average of $4.95 a gallon on Monday.
Gasoline’s summer blend is more expensive than winter blends, which partially explains why prices are back on the rise.
