The future is hard to predict, but with rising gas prices and union discourse it's important to stay positive and be prepared.
Here we are again approaching another summer, and what a summer it's sure to be. As far as I can tell we are at one of those crossroad years with elections, soaring (ridiculous) gas prices and problems in the Middle East, just to name a few. Also, let's not count out the doomsday predictions for 2012. On the whole I think it will be a fairly normal year if you're ready for complete unpredictability.
