clicky

I've been reading a few of the reports on the effect of the 2020 sulfur reduction standards for gas and diesel.
I don't see the problem but global Environmentalists are really affecting our pockets.
Some say a price increase of 2 cent a gallon. I hope they are right or a bit high.

I'll be happy if Heating Oil only goes up 10 cents a gallon.

We all have different priorities. [emoticon]

Diesel prices fluctuate so much around here a 10 cent increase would not even be noticeable.

Ten cents per gallon would equate to $125 a year if you drive 10,000 miles and get 8 miles per gallon. That is really going to eat into my Caviar Budget.

Living in Florida, we mostly use our heat pump and on rare occasions, the heat strips. Power company suppliers throughout Florida have started or stopped oil and coal fired boilers in favor of Natural Gas and Solar. We still have some coal and a few nuclear sites operational. In NE Florida, we’ve shuttered local oil and coal plants and are buying power from FPL and Georgia Power supplemented by solar farms and natural gas.

The northeast has a large percentage of homes heated by oil fired furnaces. The census bureau puts that figure at 5.7 million households nationwide. With the average family size of 4 people that means nearly 23 million people rely on fuel oil to heat their homes. January tends to be a bit colder in Maine than it is in Miami. Many of those homes have no access to natural gas lines and many of the homeowners don't have several thousands of dollars just sitting around to make conversions to either propane or electric heat. The sun doesn't exactly shine daily in those areas making solar an unfeasible alternative for primary power.

I suppose we could pack up those 23 million residents of New England and other areas that use fuel oil for heating and move them to the Sunshine state to take the pressure off of Diesel prices, but paying a dime a gallon more sounds like a better alternative.

That's the Trump solution, like what he proposed when he found out Seoul is within striking distance of North Korean missiles, move it further south.

But half seriously, Elon Musk proposed a single site 100x100 miles solar in an empty part of a state like Arizona and it will generate enough power for the entire nation.

Sounds as good as building a wall in Colorado.

The way things are going, there's going to be a lot of moving in the next 100 years.
