Get over gas prices

As promised, gasoline prices are climbing fast this season and, the experts say, won’t be going down any time soon.

I can never get over the incoherent fury of people who, of their own free choice, have hitched themselves and their private economic well-being to a system that depends on overseas despots and wobbly supply chains, then see that system disrupted in entirely predictable ways. Adults can limit their exposure to this problem if they only choose not to declare themselves helpless. I guess it’s easier to demand the government intervene on your behalf, and to hell with the fact it would mean rampant shortages, devastation of the Canadian economy ā€¦ and probably the separation of Canada’s petroleum-producing provinces and prices hiked back up right where they were.
