it's the falling dollar that's wracking the most havoc...but, don't worry too much about it...Venezuela, Iran, and even our pals the al'Saud family are all working towards pegging OPEC transactions to the Euro...
looks like my "$5.00 per gallon before July 4" prediction is coming true: just spotted $4.99 premium 91 over at the Valero station today...
Mr Chavez (Venezuela dictator) was not bluffing , he will do what he can to see that Mr Bush faces $8.00 per gallon pump prices by the end of his term...
...and, no one here has mentioned "peak oil" yet? Maybe that has something to do with the current state of affairs?
i like the mpg of the smart, but it won't be truly smart until an all-electric plug-in version is available. What features do I want? Regenerative braking, solar trickle charging film embeded in the plexi roof, 250 mile range at 70mph, 6 hour recharge, and optional extender battery packs for even greater range...maybe even a "micro" recharge engine flex-fueled...for emergency recharge...something like a 10cc single piston gasoline/deisel/alcohol hooked to a micro generator...
i am so sick of traditional gasoline engines, i could puke...gasoline engines suck
