Don't count on it yet, the oil producers will state that corn prices will blah blah blah and it will make ethanol blah blah blah. So up go the gas prices.

Someone DNRTFA......


But the situation isnt too unexpected because it sounds like they had been exporting more than they were keeping for domestic use, which led to a spike in prices at home. So no exports to drop the price and allow home supply to rebound

Who knows? We might get lucky... We had a pipeline break when I lived in AZ, and there were gas shortages for like 3 days, high prices, etc... But since it was only 3 days, we got lucky. By the time we needed gas, prices had gone back down. Maybe this one would be that short as well. One quick bump, then it comes back down?

Probably not, but it's nice to dream...

Palm oil plantations are terrible not just for wildlife, but for the people who work on them.  They've resulted in pythons preying on humans because their regular food has been displaced.

This is why there's a big future is in the gutter oil business.

Gutter oil, it's what's for dinner.

No problem. We can switch to sunflower oil.

Agree. Palm oil plantations are incredibly damaging to the environment. And they put the oil in everything, from peanut butter to snack food. I always look on the label and I won't buy it. I complain to the store when their own brand contains it.

If those farmers weren't growing oil palms they would just grow something else just as damaging to the environment.  They aren't going to return their land to the forest without compensation.

Olive oil for eating raw (e.g. in salad dressing) or in Mediterranean cuisines.  Peanut oil for frying potatoes and fried chicken (nothing tastesbetter for either one IMO).  Canola oil for everything else.  Palm oil for the garbage can.

Oil companies will use any, and I mean any, excuse to raise prices.

1. Buy bacon from good pasture raised pigs.
2. Make bacon
3. Save bacon grease
4. Use bacon grease when cooking other foods

Its yummy and a good source of Vit D. (has to be pasture fed though)

Stop exporting your most exported product. Yep that should work.

I don't even eat the peanut butter with palm oil added. An ingredient shiattier and cheaper than peanuts that actually brings the price of ground peanuts down.

Yes, vegetable oils - used in cooking.

Palm oil spiking is gonna spike other oils, and you're gonna wind up with a lot of starving poor people.

Laughing about cooking oil spiking is as out of touch as the Arrested Development , "what could a banana cost? $10?" meme
