Can You Feel the Tension?

Big oil must be upset this week. 

There are no hurricanes disrupting upstream operations in the Gulf, the ceasefire in Lebanon is [for now] holding, and terrorist plots are being thwarted.  The global outlook is, for the moment, actually positive.

The apparent result: gasoline prices in my area have fallen 12% over the past few weeks.

But, are you like me?  Can you feel the tension?  Can you feel the twisted desire for some bad news to come from somewhere, just so that the local price at the pump can jump 30 cents overnight?

It's the calm before the storm.  Gozer the Gozerian is coming.  Fuel prices will rise again.
