When are we finally going to get serious about alternative fuels? As soon as we begin getting that out there for us to use for our cars, then the oil companies will collapse. Then we can watch the mid east contries go back to riding camels and we can get rid of all the off shore drilling. We can also watch all of the CEO's of the oil companies move out of their mansions before THEY have to foreclose on them!
