As this nation struggles back from the Great Recession, one must wonder what really is behind Big Labor’s agenda. It certainly can't be job creation.

While many of the major Western nations are presently united in a military effort to wipe out terrorism in the Middle East and East Africa, there’s been an ongoing “lack of will” to enforce the same vigilance when it comes to ocean piracy.

Words cannot describe the human and emotional impacts of the devastating Japan earthquake, tsunami, and the still-unfolding nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant. Nearly half a million people have been displaced, forced to find shelter from the snow and freezing temperatures, and the death toll—currently estimated to be 6,911—continues to climb with more than 10,000 people still missing.

In the previous Oil & Fuel column, I explained that throughout 2010 and early 2011 tight diesel markets had been pressuring the price of crude in much the same way that they did during the 2008 price run.

When I am asked what the big topic in the industries LM covers is these days, there is no surprise of late. It is a one word answer: fuel. How could it really be anything else at this point? If you need more proof, look at the past two weeks of diesel price increases from the Energy Information Administration. They both check in around the 15-cent mark. Ouch.
