the USA to FALL from over $8 per million British Thermal Units in 2008 to
about $4 today.

Not as desperate as countries that have to heavily subsidize uneconomical
ways to produce energy before anyone would be crazy enough to do it, like
wind and solar and the most damaging and immoral of all, bio fuel.
