I don't suppose that I really need to say this but there is a point above which the cost of fuel will destroy the American economy. A couple years ago, when we were still healthy and strong, at least on paper, that cost was $147. What will it take this time?

This also feeds into the hyperinflation of our food. The average meal travels 1500 miles to get to your plate. As oil skyrockets what do you think will happen to the cost of transportation? Add this to the already incredible rise in price of basic food commodities such as wheat and corn and very soon only the wealthy will be able to afford to eat. When that happens the system will break down and food will only be available in limited quantities because the demand will have been reduced to only the minimal, subsistence level. All the companies that produce our food today will simply cease to exist because they won't be able to make a profit.

With the producers gone and many of the large corporate farms unable to sell their product and going broke it will fall to the individual to produce their own food, just as it was through most of human history.

If you don't prepare for this new reality now while there's still time you will not survive the future that is right around the corner.

I hope I'm wrong about all this but I can't see any other logical end to the things that are occurring today.
