The national average price of gas in the U.S. surpassed $5 per gallon today for the first time ever, according to GasBuddy, the leading fuel savings platform saving North American drivers the most money on fuel. There has been months of gas price increases across the country, accelerated by the rise in seasonal demand amidst supply constraints borne out of the pandemic.

In recent weeks as U.S. gasoline inventories have fallen over 25 million barrels, or over one billion gallons, since the start of March amidst a global decline in refining capacity.

Prices are averaging $6.40 in California.

There is a heat map of prices.

On March 5, 2022, National average price of gas breaks $4/gal for the first time since 2008.

Oil Price indicates that OPEC has almost used up its spare capacity.

Conservative estimates, cited by Reuters, OPEC’s spare production capacity could slip below 1 million barrels daily by the end of this year. This is equal to less than 1 percent of global demand.

According to the EIA, the situation looks a lot better, with OPEC’s spare capacity at around 3 million bpd right now.

There is risk of oil disruption in Libya and hurricanes could impact Gulf of Mexico producion.

It would take 60-70% of the fuel to send space based solar panels or satellites to GTO (geostationary transfer orbit). Here is a Nextbigfuture video describing how…

Terraforming Mars for Plants and T-shirt Comfort Temperature and Air Pressure by 2150

Chris McCay describes how to terraform Mars within about one years of starting. Chris has determined that using supergreenhouse gases like C3F8 (Octafluoropropane) would warm up the atmosphere by about 40 degrees celsius and increase the pressure by 1000 times. This would enable Mars to grow plants and trees. The terraforming analogy is that of…
