As part of my preparations for a final post of 2010, I reviewed my 2010 Google Analytics results.

Here is a updated version of the chart that has remained popular for five years.
It is interesting to note that heating oil prices as reported by the U. S. Energy Information Agency for the month of December, 2010 are nearly back to their 2007 peak. Boy, I sure hope that is not an omen for this coming summer. I hope you agree that 2008 is not a year that most of us would want to relive, from an economic and energy cost perspective.
