Weekend Wisdom — It’s a Gas, Gas, Gas!

The big story, at least in the financial world, is the rapid rise in gas.

Government bankers around the world are cranking up their money-making machines.

Wars and rumors of war are roiling the oil markets and sending the price of oil over $100 a barrel.

These two factors are enough to drive prices.

If the trend continues, the wheels of the economy can spin off the track; expensive oil has led to many recessions. On the other hand, I’ve been reading that production is up and more oil finds may (eventually) pop the oil bubble.

I’ve included a few links about how to play this type of market, but there’s a lot more going on in the world than just high gas prices. There’s sleep. There’s autodidact schedules. And more.

Here ya go…
