I agree with you there. And if you go to Venezuela, gas is about 11 cents a gallon or something ridiculous like that. Nice that they realize what "fuels" their economy and give back to their people.CessnaDriver said:I wont defend some exec, but they are not the reason why gas costs what it does.
In some western countrys gas costs more then double what it costs in America. So yes, it could be much much worse.
Well I was a little sarcastic with the reply, but it wasn't very evident. Your points are well taken and I wholeheartedly agree.CessnaDriver said:Certainly, but that is artificially created by Chavez, and has nothing to do with giving anything back to the poeple. Living under a socialist whack job does not appeal to me, nor islamic fundamentalists. We are going to be using gas for a while, until the next big breakthrough, which will come someday. perhaps sooner then we think. But more affordable gas in the future, means making some decisions today. Decisions Americans are still reluctant to make.
Our ethanol program will never be successful like Brazils. Brazil's ethanol is sugarcane based which takes far less energy to convert to ethanol then does our corn based ethanol.TheDarkCutlass said:Hurmm, yep, all in america... back in the 60's or 70's, brazil passed a law making ALL gas stations to carry Ethanol.... the 70's!
Heck, we americans are only now comming out with it, and gas stations to fill it up are still very very limited!
