For Fathers Day I would like to hear the politicians discuss the developement of alternatives to foriegn oil.
At the price of coal to gasoline conversion, crude has a break point of approx.$35 per. barrel.
At this price gas conversion has been viable for a while.
It is in the national interest and Pennsylvania, as a coal producing state to make the commitment. If OPEC were to slash the price of crude the discourage developement, the feds should step in and make this a natonal security issue.
I want to hear more about this. We, here in PA have a governer election in the wings. Where does Lynn Swan stand on this issue?

I agree with the coal posting, we should have gone that direction a decade ago. The technology exists to be free of these vultures but they are thicker than a hounds fleas.
