Reader Gasoline Question
My apologies to readers OUTSIDE the USA; a reader has a question about our internal events, however could this one be repeated elsewhere around the world, with equal good &/or bad effects?
If you read the news article, you'll run across my namesake at GasBuddy.com — I am not and do not know him.
The Colonial Pipeline that sends gas from Texas to New Jersey has been shut down due to a Russian criminal group cyber attack. Many gas stations across the southeast have run out of gas.
Is this the first gas crisis you said would happen soon?
This is expected to be resolved by next week.
Responds The Committee:
Yes, it is an initial, warm-up type event. It will appear to be aberration, hiccup or erratic occurrence but it is part of a trend.
there could be a thousand Patrick de haan's out there but there definitely not you Patrick or at least let's hope not. Your way too wonderful and cool and we don't want to share you Patrick 🤫
When shared I do not become diluted.

Russians again? I'm old enough to remember the media laughing at those who thought there were Russians under their beds and in their closets. Now the MEdia are the ones who're finding them. Good night, comrades.
I'm young enough to remember when nobody laughed at the idea of Soviet troublemakers (not necessarily Russian) because "we" American youngsters & teenagers in the 60s & 70s were bathed in anti-communist theology. This was easy because a lot of what was informed, was true.
There are a lot of YouTube videos of Russians traveling to the USA, and Americans traveling to Russia.
(Ha-ha, Patrick De Haan--I also spotted that article with your name and was just about to post it=))
This is a test of the current regime. The Russians are probing to see what reprisals, if any, will come of it.
Then there should be a definite reprisal. How about we send a cyber attack back, just as a "Hello".
Comment by a top EU official on dealing with Chinese and Russians:
My experience has been, leverage is the best thing to have, as with £50,000 and £50,000,000 borrowers that both fall behind. The former has problems, the latter has leverage.
