    I all ready pay high prices because I use ethanol free when the police state and environmentalists want us to be forced to use ethanol that does nothing besides make us use more

    Since you believe that it is unavoidable.
    Don't worry, be happy! That's your new motto? Sure, happy motoring! Just don't be whining about the cost of gas since we ignored peak oil in this country for the last 40 years.

    Ignoring a problem isn't a very good way of dealing with it....
    Until we are independent of oil from our enemies at least, we won't know for sure just how bad things can get.
    What if our friends, Mexico and Canada decide to reduct their sales to us? They can, you know....

    There are still some things I can do that will help a little more but I have addressed all the big issues of design, heating, cooling and lighting. My son has calculated that my payback period will be 7 years based on my current usage on a system warranted for 25 years. The more we can reduce our current usage, the quicker the payback period will be.

    I'm not worried.
    We buy oil from other people, refine it to gas and it's all good.
    It may be a more expensive but it's not a budget buster.

    Why would they, it makes no sense.

    It's like saying, "hey I don't want all those customers to make money from."
    You guys are being bugaboos.

    As long as you don't add in our war for oil cost in Iraq which has driven up our national debt or the cost of our sacrifice of tens of thousands of lives. But it is supposed to be another couple years anyway before it becomes a budget buster, according to the US Military. But that's at least two whole years away, so don't worry, be happy each time you pay more and more at the gas pump!

    According to the military, it's all speculative on their end.
    There is no firm rule on if there really is or is not a true peak oil.

    Regardless though, people are already coming up with alternatives.
    So again, there is no reason to be worried.
