    So that’s why gasoline is sooooo expensive. Boosting camel sales for Bedouins. Now that makes sense!

    Somebody is probably getting a kickback from the Bedouins.

    Biden-nomics put up the cost of gas, sell more EVs.

    It’s called supply and demand. We are all being conned. There’s plenty of gas. It just gets rationed to us, so the prices stay high.

    Maybe this might not be a bad idea.

    According to popular GOP myth, there is an infinite supply of fossil fuels. According to science there isn’t.

    It costs more and more to dig deeper and deeper to get to oil that would never have been touched when oil was $6 a barrel. It would cost more to extract it than they could sell it for. So there is also an economic side to the equation. As long as gasoline prices can go up, then previously unprofitable oil reserves will open up.

    So it comes down to, “How much are Americans willing to pay for a gallon of gasoline?” All you have to do to test this theory is convince them that we are running out – even for a couple of days and they will pay twice the price and wait on line for hours for the privilege.

    Eventually, we will get to the point where alternative fuels are economically competitive with oil. When that happens, U.S. foreign policy will not have to be based, in part, on the goodwill of foreign oil producers.

    It won’t work because camel food costs $11 per pound

    Odd…we’re buying from them again? Seems like only recently we were net exporters of oil, not buyers…

    Considering the probable cost of feeding a camel, gas might have to be more expensive than that. And then there’s the problem of cleaning up all those camel droppings when you don’t live in a big sandbox.
