Now after 36 years, I am proud to announce that I have sold my oil company to my sons Richard and Christopher.

My wife Donna has worked right along with me since we started the business.  I could not have been so successful without her.  Donna will still be involved in the daily operation of the business.  The woman refuses to get old.

Rick's Outlook

The Energy Report for Monday, December 22, 2008
Written by Phil Flynn, Alaron Futures and Options

T'was the last Energy Report before Christmas, when all through the pits
Trader's are wondering why the crude prices slipped.
The Traders put on their positions with care. And hoped that their equity still would be there.

OPEC was nestled all snug in their beds, 
While visions of high prices danced in their heads.
With Ali in his kerchief, and Hugo with his rap,
OPEC had fallen for a bear market trap.

And after tough Algeria talk, the Cartel was in tatters.
They made a record cut in production and it did not seem to matter.

After a short term rally that was gone in a flash, the January crude expiration took on the look of a crash.

To the cartel the selloff was a terrible blow, as members of the cartel desperately need all of that dough

When, what to those greedy OPEC eyes should appear,
a market focused on demand destruction, the cartel's deepest fear.

With a major sell-off in oil so lively and quick,
the realization of their futility hit them like a ton of bricks.
More rapid than eagles they will point the finger of blame,
and who will cheat first on production let us call them by name.

Will it be Iran, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, or Nigeria? Or perhaps, Venezuela, Libya, Qatar or Algeria.

The lost control of the market and their backs to the wall, they had better, cut away, cut away, cut away all!    

As winter rolls in we have plenty of supply.
When they meet with winter obstacle, no move to the sky.
So unless the economy improves, OPEC will be put to the screws
And Putin and Russia will have big problems too.

For oil to come back we will need strong demand proof,
yet with the struggling economy that proof is aloof.

The President is hoping that autos can turn things around. Yet how can this happen with no plan that is sound?

You can throw them some money but I would still buy puts,
it is like burning your money into ashes and soot.
A bundle of goodies to get the economy on track.
And Ben Bernanke looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

How he printed the money when things got so hairy,
but the banks still won't lend because the risk is still scary.
He will do anything to get that credit to flow. But he has to get someone to start lending the dough.

And as if the economic crisis wasn't enough of a kick in the teeth,
then you get Bernie Madoff who is a terrible thief.
The fraud went on despite the fact his books sure seemed smelly.
As an economic foundation built on a bowl full of Jelly.

The economic crisis took on a life for of itself and the theory of decoupling has been put on the shelf.

For oil producers, high prices, it went to their heads. Yet now in the future there books will see red.

When the economy is slow cutting production won't work and it proves that the cartel is a group full of jerks.

To the market right now they just have just stuck out their nose, yet in a struggling economy you need for demand then to grow. 

Our soldiers are fighting in lands far away and we pray for them and their families each and every day. They are fighting to defend all our rights so to them and all of you, Merry Christmas and goodnight.

Hi Folks,
     What a weekend.  I thought that snow would never stop.  It was tough keeping the driveway clear.
     This is a good time to talk about oil deliveries.  First things first.  Bad driveways!  If you have one it's best to be on an automatic delivery schedule. We can plan accordingly.  We try to do them before a storm and not let the tank get too low.  Remember when clearing your driveway trucks are much wider than cars.  We are carrying a hazardous material.  Sanding may be necessary.
Fill Pipes:
     It is always appreciated if the fill pipe is accessible.  If you can get to it, we can get to it.  At the least it must be visible.  We cannot shovel out a fill pipe.  A path is nice but not necessary. 
     We pride ourselves on our delivery history in bad weather, but we don't want to take any unnecessary chances.
Stay tuned...

Hi Folks,
     OPEC said they were cutting production by 2 million barrels.  This did not stop the decline in oil prices.  Inventories of oil are still building.  The slow economy is still the driving factor in the price of oil.  Most experts are still predicting that oil will stay in step with the economy.
Stay tuned...

Hi Folks,
     The price of a barrel of oil moved in a $7.00 range between Wednesday and Friday.  This wild swing has become commonplace.  OPEC and Russia will announce a very large cut in production on December 17.  This cut is intended to spike the price of oil.  It can produce a bounce in oil.  Will it fall back is anyones guess.
Stay tuned...

Rick's Outlook
Hi Folks,
     What a difference 5 months makes.  The price of oil has dropped approximately $2.50 a gallon depending on when you read this blog.  We have seen bigger fluctuations in the price of oil in one day than I saw in a year when I first went into business in 1980.
     I started driving an oil truck in 1963 right out of high school.  Back then the price of oil was 16.9 cents per gallon.  There was a price change of a penny maybe once or twice a year.  That was until the first Arab oil embargo in 1973.  What a difference 45 years makes.
     Things have changed alot since then.  I have seen 20 cent changes in the price of oil from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm.  I have a little protection from these fluctuations because of my 35,000 gallon storage facility on Route 106.  If you don't have a storage facility you are completely at the mercy of the commodity market.  Natural gas and propane are also subject to this volitility. 
     As I say to my boys - "Welcome to the oil business - It's never boring"
Stay tuned...
