Quick! Go gas up RIGHT NOW! Fuel the national paranoia! (You you remember the 'gas out' campaign - you know, ONE day we buy NO gas?) I heard on the news that an up to 20 cent per gallon jump in gas prices MAY occur next week.

Or a giant meteor could smash into Nebraska.

Have a nice day.

gasoline futures indicate a very substantial hike this summer. According to NPRs economic 'wizards', it's due to a big increase in demand for gasoline---(get this)--IN CHINA!
According to the segment I listened to yesterday, the Chinese-not the Americans-are going to be playing the biggest role in dictating the demand for fuel in the future. Wasn't expected to happen for a couple of years yet, but looks like it's already here.

super... now we need to buy all their surplus bicycles like they bought up all our surplus scrap metal last year.

Hybrid Fiero here I come!

I'll just disconnect 4 injectors and run in 4 cylinder mode. Just like the good ol' 8-6-4 caddy engine.

Well, today gas prices were already up fourteen cents at the same gas station since I posted this. dangit for being right. And there is that funky splash paintjob again: http://greenplanet3.org/ev/

Hey Jazzman i'm not bashing technology by any means , I just noticed all those batteries and this thought of accident popped in my head resulting in a shower of battery acid "OUCH thats gonna leave a mark" An electric car would be cool especially when it comes to passing the gas station/oil changes/head gasket changes/stupid ignition problems . I'm ready for the MR. fusion to come out so i can swap it onto my car !

Well, since I last posted premium gas went from 1.99 to 2.14 per gallon.
