In case you’re loaded or you’ve been busy over the holidays, or you’ve been busy getting loaded over the holidays, gas prices are about to top the $3 mark again.
And like clockwork, here come the pundits – Latin for “oil industry execs who desperately want you to spend all your money on fossil fuels so their speculator friends can get rich at your expense” – trotting out the same old lame and patently false excuses for the runup – Supply, demand, yada, yada, yada. As a journalist, it makes me crazy to see TV stations trotting these self-indulgent hacks out as experts.
Here’s a nice Bloomberg piece to remind the easy to fool among us that the pundits have one thing in mind – your money. It’s a sham, people.
