Burrito Bites

Time flies when you’re having fun, hence October has twisted through at the speed of a Midwestern tornado. Monday sees November arrive on our doorstep, complete with a duffel bag full of data. As for this week,  US natural gas has seen a prompt month rollover propelling it to within grasping distance of $4 (cooler weather and a busy tail-end of hurricane season is lending support), while crude has spent the entire tenth month of this year bouncing around but bracketed inbetwixt $79-$84. Next week is gonna be as much fun as Halloween – but hopefully long on treats and short on spooks. Candy carriers at the ready: 

–Solution to ‘energy vampires’ (= things plugged in but not in use).

–Reappearance of Huge Plumes of Oil in the Gulf.
