Burrito bites

Happy Friday! Another nutty week has seen natural gas pushing to try and reach an 18-month high on late-season heating demand and a whopper of a withdrawal from weekly storage.

Burrito bites

As we charge into December, we see oil and natural gas prices distinctly lacking in the holiday spirit and looking downbeat, as fiscal cliff and Euro woes combine with a lack of wintry weather to spur on sell-offs in the respective commodities.

Chips and Salsa With YERT Producer / Director

I formally announce this to be YERTweek™ here on the burrito. Not only does the docu-comedy YERT provide an interesting take on energy trends and sustainability, but it has also prompted me to delve into some of its key themes such as wind power and smart grids (which I will take a closer look at in the coming weeks). As for this post, it serves up chips and salsa with YERT producer / director Ben Evans, with Tamales and Tacos to come later in the week. But first and foremost, here is a brief synopsis of the film:  » read more
