Apart from a brief period at the beginning of Covidiocy, it’s not been lower than it is now in 10 years. That’s what you expect when the Jacinda government bans or severely restricts everything that traditionally has kept the economy strong such as oil and gas drilling, coal mining, animal farming — and starts importing coal to maintain coal fired power stations, when we have heaps of it in the ground. Closing the border for over 2 years has also kept foreign tourists out. At least Americans should now find Jacindaland a cheap destination even if it’s no longer cheap for us.
