Burrito bites

Happy Friday 13th! And it is indeed turning out to be an unlucky day for markets, as credit downgrades to European countries have scuppered the goodwill that had been carefully constructed in the last week.

Crude had already been pressured back into double-digitdom by the likely delay to an oil embargo on Iran by the EU, while natural gas has plundered lower and lower on moderate weather outlooks, and both rampant storage surpluses and supply. But enough from me, let’s hit the treats.

–Great posts on the costs and benefits of the Keystone pipeline.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to this winter. The lack of frigid conditions may be killing heating demand for natural gas, but it sure makes it a more pleasant environment to live in! 

The Burnt Burrito Award of the Week goes to the euro, which has sold off to a level not seen since September 2010 on continued concerns about the Euro region debt crisis.

May you have a shenanigan-filled weekend!
