  1. Welcome to the economic readjustment. Truckers (and trucking support staff) will need new jobs. Non-agricultural rural businesses will decrease. Probably the remaining residents will be buying a lot fewer Ford F-350 pickups (or at least having second vehicles that are much more fuel efficient). And the ‘burbs will eventually start to decline as well.

    The good news for global corporations: this means a new pool of cheap labor ripe for exploitation right here at home. The good news for unions: someone’s going to need them again. The good news for the environment: we won’t be able to afford to waste half our energy anymore. The good news for the average consumer: I’ll get back to you.

    BTW, unleaded gasoline in Cedar City, Utah last night was at $4.14. That’s now more than 30 minutes work at the average local wage.
