    Peak oil has nothing to do with running out of oil. It is when consumption exceeds production. We passed that point in this country 40 years ago.

    If you think that is not true, please post the years since 1971 that we have produced more oil than we consumed (with source links).

    Thanks!
    If that is really your argument, then the fix is relatively easy. Build more production facilities, and drop the burdensome regulations preventing such.

    See, easy. Now tell the truth.

    Oil companies haven't invested in more because of decreasing cheap oil availability. And please list the specific burdensome regulations you speak of.

    How Do You Charge An Electric Vehicle?

    "Worried about how to charge them? Plug them in at home or work using either a standard 120-volt outlet (slower charging times) or into a specialized 220-volt outlet (for faster charging times). If you’re out and about, you’ll need to find one of 655 electric-vehicle charging locations located across the United States, though 434 are located in California, according to the Department of Energy. By the end of 2011 there will be over 11,000 individual charging stations found at locations just like these. Plan longer trips in advance, and give yourself some time to recharge, because electric cars can take six to 12 hours to get to a full charge at standard 120-volt outlets."

    You charge a battery by supplying it with a slightly higher voltage at a current that will not overheat the battery. Doesn't matter if the source is 110 or 220, as it has to be dropped to that "slightly higher than battery level" and then converted to DC.
    So battery charge time isn't going to change just by going to 220.
    It is essential to not overheat the batteries, so the DC amps going in to the battery bank must not be so high as to cause overheating. That shortens the life of the battery.

    $100 a barrel? that is cheap? Price at the pump constantly flirting with $4 a gallon? That is cheap? And if you want the regulations just search EPA and you can find them.

    Not sure what the physics/chemistry of it is, but some of these electric cars do come with 220 volt quick charging options which are much faster than the 110 chargers.

    You made the claim, you do the work to back it up.

    Explain how any of these are unnecessary and burdensome rather than protective of health and the environment?

    Not going to play that game. Government regulations are strangling our economy. End of story.
