The free market will do nothing until these alternative fuels get more cost effective & more infrastructure is present to support them.<quoted text> I don't have a confederate flag I have a WV flag which was for the north by the way.
If the free market thought it was a good idea they would be thicker than fleas on a shaggy dog. When the product is right the market will respond. Till then it's a waste of money.
As long as the market share is low, no industry will put much investment into it.
You are having GD fit about the economic problems a penny a gallon has on the economy.
I wonder what effect it has when the price of oil has gone from $18/bbl in 1998 to $100 a barrel?
That would be nearly 200 times worse of an effect than your penny increase.
Hundreds of billions Every year!!!!
And you f*cking Flacktards ran screaming through the streets about 60 billion over several years into efforts to push the concept of moving away from oil.
We can not afford to do nothing as we export hundreds of billions of dollars every year until the free market does something.
The less oil we use, the lower the demand, the lower the price. the fewer dollars we export, the more dollars for our economy.
That is simple economics.
