Looks like the cans cost about $0.01, so adding $0.001 (a tenth of a cent) to the cost, would increase the cost by 10%.
:no: j/k :grin:
Where did I go wrong in my math?
Cans cost way more than that. And this is about all aluminum which includes one hell of a lot of products other than cans. A one ton coil of aluminum costs more than a penny....
The link I provided says a penny each, minimum of 5000, and they can supply up to 8000 per day. Do you have a source for a better price?
I agree. How do we fix it?
Shrink guvmint, and go back to personal responsibility.
You are probably right, that would cause a revolution.
Canada and ND produce very little nat gas.
Arkansas, Texas, Lousiana, Gulf of Mexico, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oklahoma, New Mexico and now Wyoming and Colorado are the areas where the nat gas production is occurring
Gasoline prices are usually higher during the spring and early summer due to the special blends required that cause rfeineries to have to shut down as they modify their processes. Spikes during the winter are often associated with refinery outages or geopolitical instability and the impact on the price of oil.
Coal produced electricity is cheaper when nat gas is over $3.7 to $4. This administration CO2 rules are what is making coal powered electricity cost more. We should be using nat gas to heat homes and power fleet vehicles and use coal to produce electricity (without the over the top CO2 rules driving up the price)
If we want to give OPEC the boot, we have to convert homes and fleet vehicles to natural gas instead of throwing money at the Solyndras of the world, build the keystone xl to get Canadian oil to our refineries, and do a lot more deepwater drilling in the Gulf but none of that is going to bring down the price of oil because it costs $65 - $75 per barrel plus just to produce. We also desperately need east-west pipelines to move oil from the center of the country to the coasts.
Monopolies are not capitalistic so OPEC is far from capitalism. And no, I don't love OPEC but I do like cheap N. American energy powering our economy and providing us a competetive edge.
Other than that, no, no questions.
Just kidding phil. It looks right to me.
Agreed on the coal and NG usage.
Correct, OPEC is not a "Capitalist" venture, but instead it's a socialists conglomerate made-up specifically to drive up the cost of oil.
