If we could establish a more regular use of fuel alternatives, we wouldn't have to be at the mercy of OPEC.
Hybrid cars can run on electricity as well. I was out in California not too long ago and there were several people who can get 120 miles to a gallon of gas for their cars. They could plug it in at night and let it charge up the battery.
Basically, when you are in the city, it uses electricity to power the car, kinda like a golf cart, and it only uses gas on the highways.
But the problem was the car looks like a piece of shit. If we can get a good-looking stylish car that can get 120 mpg, why not?
Hydrogen power is also a way of the future
bottom line is the avarage american needs two or three times as much oil per year than the second ranked country. americans are oil wasters #1 on this planet.
Dont let facts get in the way of your America bashing.
What's next? We buy oil just to burn our cars with? Awesome
