Hoarding as a hedge against inflation is a good way to trigger hyperinflation.

There were/are contracts w lid prices for home heating oil offered to consumers where the oil company did the hedging for all their customers. Having heated w oil for ~30 years I imagine that this latest rise was devastating to some. Glad I left that world behind a few years ago.

You missed the point....hedging on futures isn't about the shelf life of fuel, lol.


No dearheart, I did not miss the point. I was responding to the "fuel storage" people.

I would sooner invest in a SP500 index fund vs gasoline futures.

Since I no longer full time and only occasionally part time camp with frequent fishing trips without RV then this is my hedge. Also reduced non necessary trips and driving except for fish/camp trips during cooler months. Works for me with no risk of losing money. Cheers

LOL.....look at what all that Covid Hoarding caused......you got it, hyperinflation lol. Well at least inflation with some help from some certain folks who will remain nameless.

Somewhere a guy sits in his garage looking at 35 cases of Campbell's Pork and Beans and wonders how he could possibly stomach another can.

We joked about how much TP was returned for refund when rent was due.

That man has never been hungry, really hungry. Worst case they could be traded if times were truly desperate.

Buying pork and bean futures on Wall Street may have no value in a crisis to get food to eat.

Inflation was caused by hoarding? That's a new one. I like this chart from the St. Louis Fed which shows the growth of the M2 money supply starting with the pandemic due to government handouts, budget deficits, and easy money policies from the Fed. It's astonishing how fast the money supply has grown. When the money supply grows faster than GDP you get - wait for it - it's coming - the answer is:

Inflation
