    but if there is only a demand, by the public, that isn't necessarily a need or cause enough to build one.

    The public in Cache County Utah seemed to think that a transit system was needed...to be fair, they may have been duped by politicians. Ridership is pathetic. Most of the time they are running a bus with only a few people in it. I think a van, or airport type shuttle vehicle, would be more appropriate.

    Since they have almost repaid our loan and didn't close down with massive layoffs adding to the unemployment and furthering the recession, it was a great investment, yes!

    no; i have simply learned not to argue with people who stand in the streets muttering angrily to themselves about the special receivers in their head. when you get a guy whose reason for being is wrapped around an unnatural insistence on arguing One Thing And One Thing Only, you're not dealing with a rational individual, and debate is usesless.

    And of course Zimmer will tell us all how it's not the gas Co's fault, nor the energy speculators...

    Arab Spring? Does Zimmer even know that is?

    All he knows is there's a black man in the white house and everything is his fault...

    what independence? from what?
    As long as we are DEPENDENT on others for our energy, we cannot say we have "independence"....

    He means more like the independence to be able to just walk to the driveway, get in, and go, whenever and wherever you please. No schedule or route to follow.

    you obviously didn't read the links I posted... The numbers you posted are correct, but they're in line with the planned delivery for the year. In the Volt's case there isn't a problem with demand (as stated in the article) and in the leaf's case the 20,000 they planned for year were pre-sold before the year even started. Please read before you retort next time.
