    Wondering how many here saw these scenes of the Arab Oil Embagoe live and in living color? Raise your wrinkled paw! Were you an odd or even? Did your state have colored flags to show what the situation was at the service stations?

    A doubling of the price of oil at the refinery level and actual shortages of gasoline at the pump raised the price of gasoline to outrageous levels for that period. One of the pictures shows the price of gasoline at $3.66. Trying to imagine $7 gas at the pumps now in this far less robust economy we're in now.

    Crude Oil Futures as of the NYMEX Friday close.
    Crude was  exploring  the upper limits of the fear premium once again. Moving easily through previously lightly auctioned area from 109 to 114.05.  Caution… the lightly auctioned areas can move freely both ways!
    112        Minor Acceptance
    110.70   Minor support
    108.68   Acceptance
    108        Support
    107.50  Major Acceptance
    106      Major Support

    HDY
    HDY found support almost to within a dime of the the January lows around 3.90. I hoping to see this drift in fits and starts to 5.30. The $5.30 area is shaping up as the most accepted price until we hear some price popping news.

    NOG
    NOG is holding acceptance at 23.72 on improving volume pressure after re-taking major support at 23.25 (Post S&P mutterings). Late bears will not want to see this much above 24.96 which will put them increasingly underwater with major acceptance areas above.The area above 24.96 was very lightly auctioned in the last move down and any move up could be rapid to major acceptance at 26. Above 26.38 resistance and congestion fades with the next major resistance at 27.86.
    27.86 Major Resistance
    26.83 Resistance
    26      Major Acceptance
    24.96 Resistance
    23.72 Acceptance
    23.25 Major support

    #8 Amen
    Here's one that I think captures a little more clearly what I was noticing about the low volume in the area above 24.96.
