Oil makes my world go round

Fortune’s Stanley Bing lays out a world of $1000-a-barrel crude. He’s (as usual) being facetious. Only not. It solidified my uneasy realization these past couple weeks how much the lifestyle I’m lucky to have depends on cheap flights that let me move easily between London, Thailand, the US. Sure, my grocery bill is higher (but as I still think in dollars it already seemed way high anyway) – but because I don’t own a car and rarely drive here in London, I haven’t taken a directly noticeable wallet hit — yet.
