A wave of heat pushing in from the Midwest will send temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 Celsius) from Boston to Atlanta beginning June 20.
New York may reach 97, 16 degrees above normal, on June 21 before temperatures start to fall back into the lower 80s and upper 70s, according to AccuWeather Inc. of State College, Pennsylvania. The temperature in Washington is also expected to peak that day at 97, 11 above normal, and another streak in the 90s is expected in the capitol the following week.
On a recent Tim Danahey Show, host Tim Danahey talks about the closing of three oil refineries in Philadelphia, PA and the impact on the country. He talks about how the national media has virtually ignored this story from getting the national attention it deserves.
Danahey talks about how consumers and companies have cut back on their consumption of oil and gas products to the point where oil imports represent less than half of the total oil consumption and we are now exporting refined products to Europe.
For all of these conservation measures, consumers must prepare for the highest gas, heating oil, diesel and jet fuel prices in the history of this country as the laws of supply and demand have failed and are being rewritten.
