Gas Prices in San Francisco
We no longer have to talk about the possibility of $4 gasoline. It is here.
Thanks to Stuart Staniford for providing this picture. He lives in San Francisco, and said he drove past this station and saw the price for himself. It is going to be very interesting to see the inventory report from the EIA this week. How high do gas prices have to go before demand starts to drop? And will imports hit the shores in time to save the day, as they did at this time last year?
The Senate Stops By
Occasionally my Site Meter shows some very noteworthy domains, and last week I spotted 2 visits from the U.S. Senate at the same time. Probably staff members, I know, but when people that close to the policy-makers are reading your stuff, there is hope that the message is getting through.
On the next snapshot, I have the Senate (same as #20 above), the U.S. Army, the USDA, NC State, The University of Chicago, the Wisconsin State Government, another domain in D.C., and UC San Diego.
