Any hopes of inflation cooling off any time soon are about to be quickly and brutally dashed. After declining for much of the summer, energy prices are heading back up again—and for reasons that have nothing to do with Fed Chair Jay Powell’s interest rate hikes.
After bottoming out on September 26th, the price of benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude oil started rising again, and is now over $93 per barrel.
Brent crude has followed a similar trajectory, moving even higher to close in on $99 per barrel.
These moves in oil lost no time in being carried down to the price of gasoline, with gasoline futures, which began rising in August, increasing that trend until they closed out the first week of October at $2.77 per gallon.
This is already being reflected at the pump, where prices began moving up at the end of September, after falling steadily since early June. The Energy Information Administration now puts the average price of gasoline in the US $3.909 per gallon.
Jay Powell will likely try to contain this new inflation threat with yet more interest rate increases. He will fail, for the same reason his interest rate hikes have failed consistently thus far: this inflation is not being driven by monetary forces.

#1- Destroy fossil fuel business in America
#2 - Provide Tens of Billions of Dollars for "sustainable energy" that is nothing more than "social science" and will not be a viable source for over a hundred years if then.

Crank up nuclear plants, drill and explore, let the free market reign.
That strategic reserve isn’t bottomless.
