    This really stupid increase effect long term prices, which hit the poorest the hardest. Just another cost producers will pass on. Since I have enough money to buy all the gas I need, maybe I should be as as disengaged as the ecofreek. above.

    It is about deep pockets, and Obama's hate speech about the rich. There is a sickness in this great Nation, that the ignorant, lazy or just unlucky are somehow entitled to the bounty of the wealthy. BP's accident was not intentional. Sh** happens.

    If I ever need rescued, I hope the US Seals or the Israelis rescue my butt. With Obama, I guess the good work will fall on the "D" teams.

  • Farmers are expanding plantings into previously off-limit conservation lands as high prices make crops more profitable than re-upping with the Conservation Reserve Program. The idled land will take years of investment, plowing, and fertilizer application before becoming productive enough to be profitable again.  [View news story]
    To bring fallow land back in to production takes more than spreading a bag of seed around. There may be equipment, fencing, weed and brush control, just to name a few basic costs in bring land back in production Even if you are just increasing forage production, there is at least two years before you can fully utilize new pasture.
    Farming is one of the brightest spots in the U.S. Economy, and we are efficient. Farm products are also one of our major exports. It is high time the market is such that idle land can again be productive and adding to the U.S. Wealth.
