The world is running out of oil - if you doubt that statement - pickup one of the books with the Title -
Hubbert's Peak - in it. Because gasoline is relatively
cheap in the US - we haven't embraced conservation but,
its going to be ramped down our throats over the next 15
years. Don't be deluded into believing the propoganda of the Saudi's that they came out with last week. They do not have an additional 70% oil reserves - it's simply not true. Hybrids that get 50+ mpg give an additional 10 to 15 years of life to the gasoline engine.
