The average cost for a gallon of regular gasoline has surpassed $4 per gallon for the first time since 2008. Many consumers have seen prices at the gas pump rise swiftly, with the price of regular gas jumping 41 cents during the first full week of Russia’s war in Ukraine, according to AAA …”

- Natural gas has hit an all-time high in Europe
- Gas prices are hitting an all-time high in the United States
- The stock market is getting wobbly
- Something like 2 million refugees have already poured out of Ukraine
- Ukraine has been turned into a meat grinder for Russians and Ukrainians
- We’re closer to World War III than at any point since the Cuban Missile Crisis
- The cancellation of Russia’s currency and economy has opened Pandora’s Box with all sorts of unanticipated consequences
- Ukraine has been successfully turned into Syria
- Russia has been permanently driven into the arms of China
- The petroshekel has probably been fatally undermined by these sweeping moves
