Sure, you may not fill up your car’s tank with diesel fuel at the gas pump each week. But that doesn’t mean the world’s diesel supply shortages — and the skyrocketing prices as a result — won’t affect you or your budget.
In this video, Glenn Beck explains why every American should be concerned about the rising cost of diesel. “Diesel fuel is the fuel that powers the economy,” he says. Nearly every truck that delivers every shipment from every order you make is running on diesel fuel.
When diesel fuel shortage hit and prices increase, the time and cost gets pushed to you. That means longer delays, higher shipping costs and ultimately higher overall pricing. It’s not just your Amazon Prime order, either. The cost spike is bound to hit food prices, clothing and even the cost of your pizza delivery driver.
Maybe we could all start riding horses again, but diesel costs could be much less of a problem if the government would simply allow American oil production. The answer it not that difficult. The oil supply is right under our feet. Check out the latest video from Glenn now for the full report and how it will impact you.
