Now, over at small holding, they are bemoaning the fact that we might have to go back to locking gas caps.
Huh...never got rid of mine.
Folks. In a real sense, fossil fuels in a fungible format are the ultimate form of currency. The energy to move, stay warm, provide electricity, and do any number of needful things. To keep the 2,070,000 BTU-equivalents found in your gas tank open for the world to use is just plain silly.
Look, here in the blogosphere we piss and moan constantly about the nature and value of money. We prepare our bug out kits, build up our pantries, and do all the sexy little things that let us think that we are studs. Then we leave our vehicles out on a city street, with the fuel cap open to the world, almost begging folks to come with a hose and steal the special sauce that makes all the other plans work.
