The temporary uptick in employment created by the hundreds of thousand of new seasonal census employees has created better jobs numbers for now. In the mean time, the stock speculators seeing the uptick are now driving up the price of oil. This increase in oil prices will be reflected by an increase in gas prices. So basically the ongoing census project has given us hugely overrun budgets, as well as awful commercials, and now higher gas prices. So probably the price of gas will be higher long after the seasonal employees are let go.The gift that keeps on giving………. You can count on that..
