And, of course, the corn farmers love E-10.

Thanks. I will look for it next time I fill up. I will probably have to drive to a nicer section of the city because I don't think it's available where I live.

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
I saw a Ford SUV hybrid that was the coolest thing. I was walking to class and the truck was behind me, the driver waiting patiently for me to get out of his way. I didn't even hear it behind me. I would definitely get one. I really want a Civic or Accord hybrid.

Or do you think Americans buy gasoline and pour it down the drain? Think before you write.
a typical answer of a stubborn american you are. americans take their big cars just to go shopping half a mile away. they use their cars for everything. and how about all those big trucks?

What's next? We buy oil just to burn our cars with? Awesome
another kind of a stubborn answer of a true waster you are. i've seen documentations of how americans waste oil, electricity and water like no other country. the american way of life is a big waste of these things. that my friend is a fact and any expert can tell you that.

This thread reminds me of one of the radio commercials in the Grand Theft Auto 3 game -

Phil and I just had another kid. So of course we need a bigger SUV. Being a mom is hard, with soccer, football and lacrosse practice, so we bought the new Maibatsu Monstrosity. It's so big...we lost little Joey in the back and couldn't find him for an hour! When I'm rushing to the mall, or talking on my cell phone, I know me and my family are safe. The Maibatsu Monstrosity has 4-wheel drive, and in amphibious mode... it can cross rivers. So far I've only hit a few puddles, but it's good to know it's there. With the time I save taking shortcuts through the strip-mall parking lot I can focus on the important things. Like gazing longingly at the pool boy or...buying more exercise equipment off the TV. So what if it gets 3 miles to the gallon!? I'm a mom, not a conservationist!

The new Maibatsu Monstrosity... mine's bigger!


Anyway, I like America but American economy is in a mess. Unsustainable debts have taken them to colonizing oil rich countries to try to keep their consumer society going. Fun, fun.
