Burrito bites

It’s been another stormy week in commodityland™, as the election and a nor’easter have caused extreme turbulence for oil and natural gas respectively. Oil rallied prior to the election result, only to immediately look ahead to a looming ‘fiscal cliff’ and sell off with vehemence. As for natty, it has moved lower in the face of inclement conditions in the Northeast, as it looks to better times next week and record storage. Enough looking back, here comes the weekend and the snacks:

–Shale is dumb but booming…what would happen if it got smart?

–Smart grid future lies with natural gas.

–Quiz time! Which Bond said it? And bonus: 20 Bond infographics.

–Natural gas: from zero to dirt cheap.

–How far can you drive on empty?

–Korea’s toilet theme park.

–What’s holding back electric vehicles?

–The 20 slowest economies in the world.

–Opec sees increasing coal use in the coming decades….while this piece tells a similar tale.

–After the boom in natural gas.

–What 10-4, Mayday, and Roger are all about.

–Gas golden age darkens in Europe on US coal.

–Developing nations to overtake the West by 2060, China to become the world’s biggest economy in four years.

–25 clever billboard ads.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to the record storage level for natural gas at 3,929 Bcf.

The Burnt Burrito Award of the Week goes to the revelation that wine and fracking don’t mix. Bad news, dudes, bad news.

Have a transcendental weekend!
