U.S coal prices are up 125% from 2000-2009 in a poor economic time period. From 1981-2000, in a good economic time period, they dropped 25%.

In 2006, world coal consumption was 3.09 billion tonnes. At that rate of consumption, the world has 287 years of proven coal reserves. And yet coal prices keep going up just as oil prices go up.

It's not just oil, it's everything that is seeing price increases. This doesn't prove we are running out of everything, it proves that the Fed is printing too many pieces of paper. Even Alan Greenspan is saying a move to a gold standard would be helpful to reduce prices...
