    Seems to be a correlation with tax credits and purchase decisions. Pretty steep jump in Model 3 inventory from last quarter, 130%. As of 01/01/24 the Model 3 Standard and Long Range no longer qualify for tax credit, the Performance still qualifies.

    Ok to bushhog a utility line ROW?

    We have easements for water lines going to injection wells across our West Texas property that have a 10-year expiration. If the company wants to extend it they can for another 10 years, by paying the same price. If not, they have to remove the pipes.
