The price of gas isn't my concern either. It's the political noose around our necks because our nation is so dependent on oil.

...but North America did not learn from the previous lessons regarding oil shortages. The mindset was to make smaller cars (see Chrysler, survival in mid/late 1970's) and when it startd to smooth out - big gas guzzling, enviromently unfriendly vehicles became popular again.

Getting back to the car topic, I'd be interested in seeing the Road and Track numbers that show owning a hybrid is cheaper. Form all the numbers I've seen, owning a hybrid costs you way more. The upfront costs you pay for it will not get made up in savings at the pump, unless you drive it for about 10 years, and don't have to replace the battery or anything. Just getting a Civic, or a diesel Golf or something will save you way more money.
And dependance will slowly shift from crude oil to some other form of energy. I think estimates put the world's oil supply at about 40 to 60 years. As time goes by, prices will continue to go up, until more energy production methods are developed, and as those eventually become cheaper, everything will just kinda switch away from gas without anybody really knowing it. Or so we hope.

no matter what source of energy we use to power vehicles in the futurewe will be scumbbaged out of our money so we can drive them-if someone developed a car that got 200 mpg gas would probably soar up to 100 bucks a gallon-but if i had a car that would run on hot air----i could drive with my mother in law for ever
