Just noticed this on YouTube

If life wasn't already difficult for some with inflation and higher costs of goods, the gov decides is should make it even worse.

Pretty sure they edited a clip from when they announced the carbon tax scheme infront of the editorial video, so not sure how reliable this is now.

Just did the math and that fun 1040km ride we did on Tuesday cost me about $90 in gas.

Not cheap. But I’m happy paying $90 for a full day of thrills.

I don’t think many would be surprised.

Demand has to tank for prices to drop.
Is there more demand then before COVID. I understand it was quite low during COVID, and when things started up again there would be surge in demand but certainly eventually it would be back to pre COVID. But sensing the pricing won't be.

Oil companies have been smarter this time. Usually prices go up they build to increase capacity then that causes prices to crash. This time no one is building new capacity as they see how that has hurt every time they do it.

Don't quote me on this but I recall hearing of a report where China was posed to surpass (by record numbers) the post-COVID bounce and their demand will be at it's highest peak.

Let's face it...demand has to REALLY tank to record lows for oil to start dropping. People are paying it no matter what, so the oil companies don't have really any incentive to lower pricing.

Higher barrel price = higher profit = higher tax to gov't = FU consumer

Everybody wins...that's not us.

I hate to say it but I have made more on this than I will spend on gas in my life

So, any recommendations for energy stocks? Been wondering what to invest in (and when). I know, this is probably more for the stocks thread, but since the can was opened...
I'm fairly heavy into Enbridge. They have a solid dividend record and are a safe and stable (IMO) stock.

I had the same question to @Scuba Steve but just found this...


My current BEST performer has steadily been VGRO. With a decent dividend and stability.

My bike gets reliably 70+ mpg and I still have dropped my riding time as it was blowing my limited budget.
Looking at eBikes around $500 for the local errands....not quite there yet.
Interesting times. :coffee:

Everyone at my work keeps saying renewable energy is the way to go right now with stocks, but honestly oil is far from dead.
