renny4, just an FYI: When you mention basic energy and electricity prices, you're not talking about oil.
Coal accounts for about 50 percent; natural gas for about 20 percent; nuclear for about 20 percent; so-called green energies about nine percent; and oil, essentially zero.
Crude oil contributes overwhelmingly to motor-vehicle fuels, as well as chemicals used in many downstream products.
That said, I agree with the spirit of what you said.
And I fully agree about what you said about the Democrat/progressive/liberal/leftist Party.
