#2 California has not done everything. For example, it could pass a $20 / gallon excise tax.

#3 His administration has emphasized a shift toward clean energy as a way to reduce the global dependence on Russian oil and gas

Maybe I'm way off base here, but shouldn't these 'clean energy' systems be in place and fully operational before shifting off 'Russian' (lol) oil and gas?

The solution was and still is simple.

Diesel is now $5.49 Gallon here in Middle-Eastern Ga. and our Food prices are reflecting the added cost of delivery from the farm to the store shelves.

Since May 1st
Milk up $.75 to over $1 a gallon depending super market.

Eggs (18) up about 50 cents

Folgers coffee $10.9, but can size shrunk from 42 oz to 24.2 OZ.

Jar of Miracle Whip Light up $1.12 now $5.21

80/20 75/25 Ground Beef with fat content changed to maintain $3.89 a pound price. The only thing stopping them is by law, no pre-packaged ground beef can have more than 30% fat.

Can of Pink Salmon now $6.49 (not on special this week)

Coke Product previously on sale in Nov. 2021 4x 6-pakes for $10. Now 3x 6-packs for $12 PLUS the Best By Dates are less than 40 days out.

Note: I am seeing more and products being sold that have Best By Dates of less than 1/4 of what they usually are. Some which normally have 1 or 2 year out dates are being seen with 30 to 90 date ranges.

Not a user, nor do I recommend it to others. The sugar content may be harmful to humans. The corporate politics, even more so.

#7 End the war. There's literally nothing else that can be done at this point to prevent hyperinflation. OPEC won't produce more and the West can't refine more.

The British people are being pushed to the breaking point. It's the same in most of Europe.

#8 Can't have a real emergency until the reserves are depleted.

#9 I think Ukraine gets to decide when the war ends. Pulling western support will not end the war. Ukraine will resort to low level attacks and gorilla type actions.
If the West capitulates and ends support for Ukraine, there is no guarantee Putin will lift his sanctions. Were I he, I would not.
