    Basin' one's opinions on those damn lyin' scientists?

    We should torture them to find out which ones are lying.

    (I like the whole idea of electric vehicles, so I hope its your guys)
    History (as opposed to the hysteria preached by those seeking the global warming green dollars) teaches us that climate change is the norm for the planet and has been and always will be the case.

    Not only that, they're coddled and praised in their worthlessness, by deadbeat parents, the media, Hollywood, and none other than President Obama, Champion of Bums. Today in America, it's 'cool' for kids to be bums. America is becoming of nation of bums. 'BUMVILLE' COMETH TO A TOWN NEAR YOU.

    it will, in two ways. firstly, it will increase supply, though marginally. secondly, it will signal to futures traders that supply will be increasing in the future, and dampen speculations current upward-bias. Admittedly this isn't going to knock us back down to $2.00 a gallon gas. Which is why we should also tap the Rockies (where we have more gas than Saudi Arabia does), both Coastlines, and open up our natural gas reserves to take over as many functions currently served by oil as they can. We have the largest energy reserves in the world, and pretending like unleashing them won't have an effect on price is... well, let's just say that such would violate nearly everything we have learned about economics.

    well I apologize and promise in the future to try not to assume a particular reading comprehension level.

    lithium batteries have dropped in price by two-third since I first started pricing packs.
    good for them. perhaps one day they will become an economically viable alternative to gas engines.

    but currently they are not.

    f it wasn't for all those silly rich people and their toys, Ford would have had no demand for his product
    actually you are incorrect. Ford had the success that he did because he managed to drop the price of the automobile enough to make it accessible to the middle class.

    And you never came up with a cite for your 1894 date(no typo).
    you are correct, thanks for catching that for me. In the course of sourcing this for you, I should pointout that it turns out I was wrong. Apparently oil alarmists have been predicting that We Would Run Out Any Day Now since the 1860's.

    In 1859, just after the Colonel Drake Well was drilled in Titusville, Pennsylvania, due to shortages of the illuminant camphene and shortages caused by the Civil War, the price of oil shot to US$15 per barrel, which, in today’s terms, would be over US$1,000. By autumn of 1861, following a race for production and the 3,000-barrel-per-day (bbp) Empire Well, the price plunged to 10 cents a barrel – US$7 in today’s terms. Four years later, newspapers in eastern US were printing stories about running out of oil.

    Predictions of the future supply of petroleum have typically been far less veracious than those of demand. Flawed predictions have caused public bewilderment, distrust and, more importantly, government inaction or poorly conceived reactions. A constant theme, from the very infancy of the industry at the turn of the 19th century, has been that the world is running out of oil...
    In the past, Campbell or his disciples have forecast the oil peak down to the year or even the day only to push back the fateful moment. In 1997, Campbell said it would occur in 2001. Now, he says total production, which includes oil from deep-water wells and fuel derived from natural gases, will reach its height sometime after 2010.

    Kenneth Deffeyes, a geologist and professor emeritus at Princeton University, first pinpointed Nov. 24, 2005, as the peak- oil date and then revised it to Dec. 16, 2005...

    No one knows for sure how much oil the world has. That's a big question mark because the peaksters say production will max out once half of the oil has been pumped. So far, we've extracted about 1 trillion barrels in all. In 2000, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated global resources at 3 trillion barrels, enough to push peak production out to 2037, according to the EIA...

    Predictions of an imminent oil famine are as old as the industry itself. When production at the first U.S. wells, located in western Pennsylvania, began to decline in the late 19th century, some people predicted the country would soon run out of oil....

    On the subject of alternative energy and transportation, your propaganda is showing.
    i dont' care what kind of energy we use. frankly, i think some of the alternates sound neat. all i care about is that it is cost effective.

    which is what i want you to demonstrate. what - TODAY - is a similarly plentiful and reliable energy source with a superior cost-effectiveness to oil?
