Over the winter, when gas and oil prices were very low, I kept wondering why my utility bill was so high, and getting higher every month. Sure, I live in a cold part of the country, but it was my thought that when prices when down, my bill would go down. I was even on a budget plan, and yet every couple of months it kept going higher.

It turns out that the energy companies don’t have floating rates for themselves, or so they say. They say that the rates are set in late spring, when energy costs are going up, and that they, and us, are stuck with those rates for the entire year.

Frankly, I don’t believe that. I won’t believe that utility companies would allow themselves to be manhandled in that fashion. Sure, they don’t create all this power, but they’re the ones who bring it to us. I’m thinking a quick shutdown of the power of one of these big oil company CEOs would resolve that issue pretty quickly.

Still, what happens reminds me of a post I wrote last year on my other blog on the oil crisis, or at least what this guy named Lindsey Williams had to say about it. He calls himself an insider of sorts, is the author of the book author of the book “The Energy Non-Crisis,” knowing lots of people, kind of banned yet still communicated to. On my other blog, I posted a video about an hour long that, based on what we’ve seen over the last couple of years, really starts to make a lot of sense, and seems quite believable. I’m not usually a conspiracy theory guy, but when stuff comes true,…

So, as I decide whether to go to the regular gas station to fill up on $2.78 a gallon gas, or head further to BJ’s where it will only cost me $2.72 (only, I say), but burn the gas to get there, I had to talk about Lindsey Williams on this blog, since this is impacting our finances. If you get a chance, check out the video; your eyes may be wide open afterwards.
