    Fear not! By Dec ’16, Doofus will force Americans to pay the same relative rates as the Eurotrash.

    “Germany pays, on average, the second highest electricity rates in Europe”

    They pay the equivalent of over $US7.00/gallon for gasoline too. They can stay home and freeze or drive a short distance to do same.

      Most people in Europe travel via the excellent public transportation available there. Car ownership is much less necessary for those who live anywhere near a city.

    More and more businesses are going to locate or relocate to America, with the most energy intensive or those that use petroleum feed stocks moving the quickest. At the moment America is by far the best and least risky place to invest, with arguably the finest infrastructure, cheapest energy, educated and efficient work force, and property rights written in stone.
