You’re probably just like me.
You go to the gas station, put in your credit card, start to fill up the tank, and immediately look away from the pump. You talk with folks near you. Fiddle with your keys. Sing. Work out the lyrics from “Someone Saved My Life Tonight“. ANYTHING to keep from letting the cost of today’s tank of gas to actually soak into your consciousness!!
………OK, maybe not just like me….
But: I’ll bet you’d like to pay less for gas, or at least feel better about WHY you’re paying so much, right? Wouldn’t you like to hear about the current energy situation from an industry expert, rather than from a beat reporter or (worse) a news anchor, whose only energy experience is buying extra Rayovacs on their way home?
Hugh Hewitt** currently has a special guest-blog on his website right now which addresses ENERGY. The author is Tim Dunn, CEO of CrownQuest Operating, one of the top oil producers in Texas.
Here’s a sample of Tim Dunn’s excellent first effort:
So what is the outlook for “food” for our economy? Are we headed for a subsistence diet of gruel and bread crust, or will we continue to eat beef and potatoes?

**Bias Note: My wife and I have both been big Hugh Hewitt fans for years now.
Host of a VERY entertaining radio show from California, Hewitt is also a practicing lawyer, a law professor at Chapman University, and a rabid Cleveland Browns fan (I try to not hold that last one against him). He also worked for almost 6 years in the Reagan administration.
If you’ve never heard him, check him out.
