Average US diesel prices are at lowest since early ’22Comment
LMAO Yeah let’s all celebrate. Meanwhile rates are at the lowest I have seen in 27 YEARS. Only a matter of time until companies start going bankrupt and worse truck and trailer financing meaning banking. But hey stand with Ukraine! Orange man bad! Climate change!!! Make no mistake we are in a recession if not depression right now. Hold on folks. It’s going to get much worse and without fixing our elections there isn’t anything short of revolution now that will fix it. 2024 isn’t the answer. Will just be a repeat of 2020 & 2022. Yeah you’ll own nothing and be happy alright.
