Stoolsmith complains that

Stoolsmith complains that businesses don’t stockpile enough items for those emergencies that necessitate he go out to purchase what he hasn’t stockpiled.

Priceless.

Yeah, the shortages of fuel

Yeah, the shortages of fuel oil and liquid propane were at the customers homes not the suppliers. They were using the just in time method which backfired on them.

A futures market exists in

A futures market exists in all commodities traded internationally, not only crude oil. Even if there is no monopoly practice, the price of these commodities will continue to rise due to the natural loss in value of the dollar because of how the economy operates with a currency that accumulates rather than is consumed as it is used. Add to this that the labor cost to produce them also operates in the same fashion and is exacerbated in some places by collective bargaining. The fact the oil is there is exposed by the solution to the individual problem of shortage simply by permitting the deliverers to work extra hours to provide it. This makes it appear there is actually a shortage and gives the suppliers an opportunity to price gauge or gain market share by not raising their prices. A sales contract only insures the suppliers they will get their profits because their cost is fixed by their purchase of futures.

Vulgar Matt fails to make his

Vulgar Matt fails to make his point, again. Ad Hominem attacks only prove you're wrong.

I heat with wood. I don't need to stockpile - I grow my own heating fuel.

I didn’t say anything about oil, dummy.

You were the one writing about stores not keeping enough product on hand. Preparation H and Depends...

This thread is about OIL,

This thread is about OIL, specifically heating oil. Which was also the primary, though not only, topic of my post.

You continue to be a completely vulgar person. You don't persuade anyone of anything, except perhaps that immaturity in anonymity is the bane of any forum. Do you act like that in person, or only here where you can do so without consequences?

Certain concepts advanced in recent years by MBA schools have removed a safety net in the name of efficiency. One of these concepts is just-in-time delivery. No storage or stockpiling, which is considered inefficient and costly due to storage costs

Thanks for the perspective, that makes sense, as a stockpiler, of wood food, I can see how that does not apply to profit for a company to the credit card carrying masses, enlightening!

as a PS can you imagine ole Matt running around ready to take some of the stockpiling that Mainers have done since they first conquered the natives here? You've stockpiled too much deer and moose that you killed, we the progressives must have it because if it is yours, it is ours.

Such is the layabouts that can't imagine a cold winter or a empty larder or they shall take it, they will be shaking in their sneakers and tee shirts as they limp onto the front porch.

Stoolsmith must be going senile because he can’t remember what he actually wrote. And tough guy Mike thinks no lefty can put 160 grains through a heart and lung at 75 yards.

This is what the next

This is what the next generation will be... immature. Never grow up at all. Jealous of anyone for anything since they can't do anything for themselves.

I fear you are right, I often

I fear you are right, I often wonder where I went wrong on my own, but they aren't nearly as bad as what is coming up after them. Really sad, as I tell the wife, we will be shooting them from our porch.

MikeG nice opinion piece ....spot on......

BUT to get back on track with the topic of this post IF you use propane and IF you are a will call customer....You might want to take a look at your tank and think about ordering. Not because of the weather but there are rail problems ......expect prices to move up and possible shortages...
