Happy last Friday in February! And the bears are back on top (like our little fella to the left) in Natgasworld™, as warm weather wanes the will of the bulls, while falling production at such a minimal rate keeps supply glut concerns firmly on the radar. Meanwhile, crude prices have pushed on to nine-month highs as the spotlight has finally shifted away from Greek woes as a second Greek bailout was approved (sequel coming soon?). This respite has left the bullish influences of hope (of economic growth) and fear (of Iranian oil supply losses) to rally prices, as economic data leans positive, while Iranian actions remain confrontational. But no more delay, let’s hit the (food) tray!

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to mighty, mighty Louisville. Not just for being an awesome city, but for also being the most manliest. Fact. (h/t Lindsey Rost)
The Burnt Burrito Award of the Week goes to the politicization and media representation of rising gasoline prices. As the first burrito bite (up top) points out – the recent rise is due to global tensions, not domestic fundamentals.
Have a joyful weekend!
