Hi there readers and fellow authors. I am Willie Tee and I send out newsletters from time to time to keep you informed of the progress I am making in the promotion of my book, The Winds of Destiny, 2nd Edition. I will mention in my newsletter book festivals, speaking engagements and book signings that I attended or will attend in the future. I also inform readers of other fellow authors that I have met and the titles of their books. Importantly, I want to encourage others to become authors, a dream come true, and to provide them guidance on how to become skillful authors.

Subject: We Need Simple Solutions

The one major thing that always stood in the shadows as our worst nightmare has materialized....Tt is the high cost of oil and fuel. There have been rave discussions that the demand for fuel has catapulted the price of it for consumers. It is called supply and demand, which according to many news sources, has ruined economies around the world. Oil companies continue to become filthy richer each day, while retailers abd consumers worldwide suffer horendously.

The high cost of fuel has increased the costs of food at the supermarket because it costs trucks more, costly fuel, to transport goods to the supermarket. Retailers are now suffering from lack of sales, because consumers are spending lots of money for fuel.

Now there is much hand wringing and comments from consumers that are too vivid to be written here. However, I have not seen the development of new transit systems that would deliver me at 7:15 in the morning to the Virginia Tidewater area where I am employed. I have not seen any current mass transit buses increase the number of their transit vehicles and routres that would facilitate the travel needs of people like myself. Thank heaven, I purchased a smaller car about a year ago that gets about 38 miles per gallon. My second car, a mini van, with 22 miles per gallon, is a gas guzzler, based on the price of fuel.

I have not seen limousine serevices, which vie for proms and weddings, advertise van or limo pooling to key employee destinations. I noted that there is no early morning train service from Richmoind to the Tidewater area either. The daily train to the Tidewater is on a very late morning scedule that does not benefit bankers either when we envision working banker hours.

I was listening to National Public Radio a few weeks ago and remember listening to a broadcast about how a mayor in a city of Brazil reduced vehicle traffic by one third in a major city by licensing personal mini vans with set fares to transport the inhabitants around the city. Unemployment was reduced substantially because the unemployed became licensed mini van (public transportation) drivers.

Just wondering how a third world country could use such vision to use less fuel and employ the unemployed. While here in America, Congressional hearings have been held which oil CEOs attend and say that they are sorry that they are making so much mobey off of the American consumers, while tuckers and other retail businesses are suffering losses and folding.

I have written too much here because it is obvious that some simple things need to happen:

Lets get larger vehicles back on the road by creating SUV and Van pooling. Lets create more small businesses by way of government incentives to create mass transit for the public. Thus we create a workable balance - - - We ride together - - - Save together and spend far less money per person for the oil compoany's products. In short we substantially decrease demand. Lets face it. Gas or fuel is not going to get cheaper, because countries like China and India are having industrial hay days from their commercial and retail growth - - leaps over bonds. These countries give their citizens substantial governemnt subsidies and discounts, which increase their fuel consumption. The businesses and citizens of these countries are using up fuel like like patrons at Happy Hour (discount drinks at bars) coast to coast China's thirst for oil and fuel, including asphalt and concrete that it is using to build and pave millions of miles of roads to support their boom towns of success, is vast.

Well it could be that like watching a dog chasing its tail, that China with its vast thirst for oil will severely demolish the extra pocket money that American consumers normally use to purchase China's manufactured goods. It is a simple equation - - - High cost of gas - - - Results in people worldwide not having money to purchase anything except for gasoline and some food - - - No money left to purchase US or Chinse goods. Perhaps in the end, China will catch and bite its own tail. I hope that the Chinese do not restrict me from travelling there after writing this newsletter, but many people do not have air fare to China. Too broke in the pocket from refueling our vehicles at high prices.

Oh...visit... "You Tube" on the Internet and search for "Air Car", It is a 90 year secret that the oil companies would not care to advertise. It is about a compressed air engine for cars, boat, etc. Air is mostly free. The years 2009 - 2010 - - - debut the 80 mpg VW car, light weight 240 mpg car (mpg is miles per gallon), the CO2 compressed air car, The Chevrolet VOLT - electric car and the GM hyrogem car. Do your research and think twice about buying more gasoline power cars.
