Why Is Crude Down But Gasoline Still Up?
Nothing has become commercially more important to us that the prices of crude oil. Rise in prices of crude oil always creates havoc in our daily budgets. First one to hit is the running cost of our automobiles (Which means skipping that favourite weekend long drives for many), and then rest everything follows. Fruits, vegetables, our daily groceries, and air travel almost everything goes up except of income. Interesting due this spiral rise in prices our real income actually diminishes as we are able to buy less commodities in same amount of price. That’s the impact of crude prices in our daily lives. For a change this time around prices of crude are looking to settle down are under $100 level but a reverse phenomena is witnessed, in spite of crude going down the gasoline (which is the prime fuel for running automobiles and a direct derivate of crude) prices are still moving upwards. Let us study this factor more in detail.Attacks On Oil Pipelines Are Serious to Global Economic Stability
The other day, I got on the topic of the importance of pipelines in any given civilization, here, or anywhere else in the world for that matter. I mentioned to my acquaintance that it was too bad about the Canadian pipeline problem last week (First Week of May of 2011), and I asked him if he thought it was terrorism, or if he had heard any word from the industry on that. Let’s start from the beginning and really discuss the importance and challenges of pipeline infrastructure.Understanding Some of the Cheapest Alternative Fuels We Have Available To Us
Ever since the 1970s when the price of the crude oil started affecting how much we were charged at the gas pump there have been people trying to convince the country to switch to alternative fuels that are much cheaper. Constant preaching to look for other ways continued with pretty much success and it wasn’t until this century that they finally started researching alternate fuels. Below are some of the fuels that could be used but still are not in full swing even though they are available.What Is Energy Deregulation?
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration website the formal definition of deregulation is “the elimination of some or all regulations from a previously regulated industry or sector of an industry”. In this case, the electricity and gas sectors of the energy industry are being deregulated on a state-by-state basis just as the telecommunications industry was deregulated in 1996.How Does the Wholesale Energy Market Affect Your Business Bills?
The continuous rise and fall of crude oil prices is well publicised in the world media, yet these fluctuations in cost are not always immediately reflected in our household and business bills. So how does the wholesale market work and what does this mean for your business energy costs?How to Make Your Own Fuel Cell With Materials In Your Own Home
The popularity of fuel cells is increasing because there are a lot of people who are trying to find ways in which to use fuel that simply does not require the use of oil. Believe it or not, you can actually make your own fuel cells in your own home and use them as an alternative source of energy.The Revenge of Energy – Waves Versus Nuclear Power
Fifty years ago nuclear power was considered the wave of the future. Indeed, for good reason, after all there’s a lot of energy packed in a very small space, and it’s better than any other source we could ever hope to refine from fossil fuels for instance. But now after the big Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami, and after watching the Chernobyl disaster unfold, many folks are reconsidering the previous generation of nuclear power.It’s Time to Use Green Energy
The Earth is getting hotter and hotter everyday. Thanks to our daily actions, we have more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere than ever. Every time you turn on the light, more power needs to be generated from a power plant that works on fossil fuels in most countries, even where nuclear power is widely used.How to Apply For a Grant for Green Energy Products and Services
Sometimes people are turned off by the cost that it sometimes takes to convert from fossil fuels to an alternative resource. However, the one thing that they tend to forget that not only is the conversion going to help the environment, it will, in the long run end up saving you money on the cost of fuel in the future. If you are determined yet don’t think you can afford the change, there are federal and local government grants that can help you pay for some of the costs to change to green energy.Alternative Energy – Using Hydrogen to Help Fuel Our Cars
It’s funny how we still seem to continue to want to rely upon the fossil fuels. Even though it has been known for decades that this type of reliance on this fuel was only going to lead us where we are today. Paying prices that are nearly unheard of and continuing to pollute the air that every living creature on this earth needs to have in order to survive. Yet, the number one source of fuel still remains fossil fuels.
