On one of the many financial news networks a Petroleum Marketer was making some predictions for 2014 and was saying that because of market conditions he expected crude prices to trend down for most of 2014 and he expected crude oil to be as low as $80.00 a barrel which could translate into gasoline below 3 bucks a gallon or even less depending on your state fuel taxes. He also stated that the United States is very close to being Energy Independent and soon could be producing more than it uses. At any rate, this could be great news for trapshooting where we have been experiencing nothing but increases and shortages. I do so hope this is true. I mean 50 cents to 75 cents less per gallon is pretty important to traveling trapshooters. I just hope this guy knows what he is talking about...............Uncle Sam, Pa.
