xanadian: Yeah, but don't expect the price of gas to fall anytime soon.I also recall that the US is currently THE leader (or near the top) in gasoline exports. It's supposedly one of the factors that's driving up the cost here at home.
Robert1966: There's still a finite amount of fossil fuel. We will run out, and it is moronic for anyone to behave as if we will not. Thinking about 2020 or 2030 is still being ridiculously short-sighted.
DerekHoge: oil isnt going anywhere.
mark12A: Hydrocarbon fuel is going to be around for hundreds of years to come. After shale gas comes shale oil, after that we make gasoline from coal, after that methane hydrates....
mark12A: Wind will always be a bit player, and solar will only happen when we have a cheap way of storing it
mark12A: ECONOMICAL solar production of hydrogen. Could happen, but the physics say it ain't easy.
namatad: Everyone knows that the US hit peak production in the 70s and the world hit peak production in the 00s.So why have ANY of the numbers gone up??
Pick: Obama getting credit for things Bush put into play? You don't say......
GT_bike: Actually Obama and his buddy Buffet oppose it. That way we can help Buffet reap $47 billion in cash. Just his train operation (BNSF) is up wildly at 72% where he hauls coal, oil and sand. Coal to the power plants. Oil to the refiners. Sand to the Frackers.
