Diesel fuel has been the headline across news channels, press conferences, and talked about endlessly on social media. The Simple suggestion is that if there is no diesel fuel, no trucks. No trucks, then of course supposedly no goods on the grocery store shelves. The same antics of issuing reasons for worry, stress, and anxiety always seem to stem right around Midterms (or elections in general), and with the 2022 Midterm Elections on the horizon, Tuesday, November 8th, 2022, this too should be no surprise.

Backstory

News broke across the country back on October 14th that the United States has only a 25-day supply of diesel. Claiming that if a change did NOT occur, around Midterm Election Day the nation would see trucks parked.

Zero Basis Solutions

The current administration claims to have a solution, and what's crazier is that states such as California, New York and others often echo this same theory that electric cars have "zero emissions" and that they are a solution. Click on this link, you'll quickly understand too why our North Dakota common sense can see that what is being sold is truly falsehood.

Coal, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas

When is the last time you can remember ever hearing of something produced, built or created, unless a vegetable to be eaten directly from the garden, that didn't utilize these components to at least be originally engineered Energy is created by electricity that is required to manufacture anything we purchase today on a shelf, or here's another thought, what are tires made out of? Automation is all around us, there is rarely an action taken that has not required more than one's bare hands.  Again, ask oneself regardless of stances from the past, one thing we learn, and acquire throughout life is common sense, and we understand completely that some of that is learned the hard way. The thought going into "Clean Energy" the current administration is toting is even leaving out the simplistic thoughts. Read this story that CBS Morning reported coming out of Minnesota.

Our final thoughts, business will remain as usual. Will we plan for continued inflation as it affects our lifestyle budget. We do not foresee our shelves bare here in North Dakota from this latest "News Buzz". But then what do we know, we only think ahead going into winter regardless, and already have stocked our shelves with supplies to outlast blizzards as we do statistically know they occur almost every winter. We wish you all health, happiness and warmth in the coming months.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
