I saw my nephew and his wife on Saturday. They both work and live in Silicon Valley, CA. near Google. They often see computer driven cars which means no people inside and the cars are driving themselves. Of the numerous test runs through the area, there have been 3% wrecks, but almost all of them have been errors by the other, human driven cars. My nephew thinks it is only time before they go to market. I like driving but there are times when it might make sense. Suppose you are falling asleep at the wheel, what a relief to put your car on auto pilot and go to sleep. What about the old who have their licenses taken away cheating them of their mobility, just think what a safe computer driven car would mean to them. But the big seller might be, you had three or four drinks at that party, what a relief, ‘Home James”. What a brave new world we live in.
How upset would you be to know that crude just hit another 6-year low of $40.71/barrel or $0.9692/gallon. Hopkins Oil Company is really not an oil company. Exxon is an oil company and they are upset. Shell is an oil company and they are being hurt. Hopkins Oil is a distributor, a delivery company whose fuel costs are coming down, cost of inventory and accounts payable are dropping. I am ecstatic. Citi thinks $32/barrel is a possibility. Good news for you and me. Gasoline dropped 7.03 cents/gallon at the average rack in Selma. Diesel fuel is down by 3.83 cents/gallon. More money in your wallet. Prices are:
Have a great day,
