It is funny, that here in Europe, where the petrol and diesel prices had been high for ages, we do biodiesel long time. Bingo America, you have just realized, that you can start saving a litle bit? Well find out that there has been many inventions, which even make energy out of watter, which can be put to a special car engine. Well these inventions are being brought down constantly, since they would kill other, more important big buck guys.

This has been done before. My god. Is this the "best" our students can do? No wonder the U.S. is becoming a 3rd world country.

Agreed!
History shows that the greedy oil companies will do most anything to destroy an industry which may hurt their bottom lines!
During the 40 & 5o's, oil companies, in cahoots with the THEN Big 3 US Auto Co's QUIETLY bought up LA's privately-owned bus & trolley companies using shell companies they created, then put them out of business, in order to force SoCal residents to buy their cars & gasoline! Seems like poetic justice NOW that all 3 of the now greatly diminished auto companies are on the verge of bankruptcy!
SERVES THE BLEEPS RIGHT, IMO!
