Prices have rolled back at the pump — including South Carolina gasoline prices that have edged below the $3 mark recently. So why not use this rollback as a time to stock up on gas?
For starters, it’s naïve to think prices will continue to fall. Baseline demand is strong and growing, and fossil fuels aren’t infinite in supply. Inflationary pressures make it a good investment to buy while prices are low.
And furthermore, energy is perhaps just as important to have food, water and shelter in a crisis. I’m not talking about for watching TV, either, but simply for transportation to a safe place or power for tools to make repairs.
