Imagine how fast hybrids would be selling if that were the case.
Imagine how nice it would be to not be a slave to the oil companies any longer.
I've maintained for years--the technology is there, we simply have to harvest it. It's asinine to think that we can put people on the moon, we can cure all sorts of awful diseases, we can construct computers that perform billions of calculations per second...and we can't mass produce a car that gets more than 40 mpg? Well, the truth is we CAN. We simply DON'T.
EDIT: I join Krono in the Conspiracy Dept. I view oil companies pushing less reliace on oil with the same skepticism I give to Phillip Morris when they push ani-smoking programs. Yeah, riiiight.
