Here's our boy Krauthammer, making some sense one time, back in 2009:
"High gas prices, whether achieved by market forces or by government imposition, encourage fuel economy. In the short term, they simply reduce the amount of driving. In the longer term, they lead to the increased (voluntary) shift to more fuel-efficient cars.
Considering how long the ICE has been around, it's taking quite a long time to reduce the amount of driving.
To the best of my knowledge, motor vehicle use hasn't stopped increasing since its inception and more fossil fuel is currently being burnt on a daily basis than at any other time in history.

Oh yes, and more people are driving IC engined vehicles than at any other time in history.

Get back to me when things change.

Clearly, you don't have a clue.
clearly, you wouldn't understand a study if you actually read one.

Things have already changed, and, of course, you missed it.

As populations increase, driving increases. More people, more driving.

Fuel economy is moving forward every year, the more gas costs, the more it will move.

People are driving less on an individual basis; combining trips, taking the shortest route, eliminating unnecessary trips, taking the bus or train, biking to work.

To the best of your knowledge? Is that the best you can do?

you're really a paranoid person it seems.....with a bad outlook on human nature. just saying, son.
Can't read?

"the endless pumping of CO2 into the atmosphere cannot be a good thing..."

Kraphammer is a useful idiot, like you.

Paranoid? Hardly. The people who know me (and you don't) say I'm witty, intelligent, fun, realistic, professional, honest, conscientious, outspoken, and optimistic.

You may need to go buy a dictionary to understand what I just wrote.

That has nothing whatsoever to do with overall fossil fuel consumption, which increases on a daily basis.

Reducing fuel consumption in the US, does little to reduce global fuel consumption.
The best it can do is make a little more fuel available to the Indians and Chinese.

guess you missed the eia report this morning while eating your cocoa puffs, skippy. Last weeks gas usage was 10.465 MLM bbls. The week before 10.140. 3 yr. average is 9.943 mln bbls per week. That's a 5% increase.

perhaps.....are you claiming that you "controlled" 10k shares, son? take a snap shot of your statement and show the forum where you bought the shares and where/if you liquidated. oh, that's right, statements aren't generated for paper trades.

Entirely due to my 17-year-old niece's driving to the store for nail polish or hamburger. Ten times a day.
