The world of oil and gas prices is a sham. How much do we pay for natural gas? Yesterday on my way in to Odessa I saw upwards of 3 dozen stacks burning it off from well sites along the countryside near the interstate. It blows my mind it isn't captured and monetized.

Obama got to blame Bush for 6 1/2 years...for near zero growth in the economy, and a doubling of the national debt.
Surely Trump should be allowed to blame Obama for at least 100 days. Fair is fair.
Once Obamacare is rolled back, Tax Reform is implemented (including the repatriation of $3-4 trillion), Trade imbalances corrected, and infrastructure spending kicks in...GDP growth is going to rocket up.
Patience my never-Trump friends, patience.

You mean the free market is at work?
Not one single American wants to pick grapes for 5$ an hour.
Prices wilp go up, people will get paid more to do the job and the free market will work.

im paying 2.14 locally, 2.19 in Belton, TX.
I got lazy and paid 2.27 a few days ago, but that was near an interstate and not a normal price.

Well, in spite of all the praise and rhetoric we hear about Trump from true believers, not only is his administration a mess, but he hasn't don't much good for the economy yet either. GDP growth is down
and gas prices are up.TextAnd a ton of jobs are probably going to be lost in the government once he gets his budget passed which is definitely going to hurt the economy as well. Then there's his brilliant plan to raise interest rates which will make the banks a ton of money but hurt all the rest of us and decrease spending on homes and cars.
I thought Trump was supposed to be good for the economy? Why the hell did people vote for him in the first place?
