Yes, but as diesel gets to be higher and higher priced will the WVO
still be available? I sincerely hope so, as I plan to use it, but I'm

VERY interesting. I had no idea, but it makes sense. So did they
really pass the break-even point and are producing oil, or are they
just anticipating? You made it sound like the former at the start of
the email, but then kinda like the latter towards the end. I'm sure
they're capable of looking ahead and seeing what's coming, of course.
If they aren't producing from the sands yet, is it economics of
extraction, or more just not wanting to compete with the price of the
oil from their wells overseas?
