Here are a couple of wild scenarios making the rounds in energy circles that could be in store for the nation’s roughly 200 million drivers. One calls for a run up at the pump to $5, $6, $7 or maybe even $10 a gallon. The other one, much more palatable, would be a 50-cent-a gallon drop to around the $3.25 level from the current national average of $3.76… Read More

Mar

The Biderman Market Theory says that in all markets there is the house and then there are the players. I have talked a lot about the house in the stock market casino on many of these videos, particularly that the house, the public companies, have an advantage over the players.
