Hi: Shutting down the Keystone gas line didn't help this problem

Gasoline (and other fuel) prices are skyrocketing everywhere.
When I listened to the news last night it was said that this has
been the fastest escalation in gas prices since tracking began.
Gasoline always goes up during "vacation season" in the USA, but
the war in Ukraine has had a hugely destablilzing effect on the
world in general and energy commodities markets in particular.
It's gonna get much worse before it gets better, that's a
certainty. And most of that is due to "irrational doom" rather
than true, huge changes in oil availability like we saw, for
instance, during the Arab oil embargo of the early 1970s. Russia
doesn't account for more than a drop in the proverbial bucket of
US oil consumption, but it accounts for a lot more of total oil
and gas consumption in Europe. The ripple effects from Europe
losing, or intentionally cutting itself off from, the Russian
energy market will travel around the world.
