MrSteve007: Meh, I already hedged my risk with Amazon Prime, an electric car and solar panels on my home's roof.
Other than the cost of milk & produce, what the fark do I care about gasoline prices?

You people, highly dependent on cheap fossil fuels, amuse me.





How did those panels get to your house?
Magic?

Anyone who eats out of a grocery store or buys goods made outside of their neighborhood is highly dependent on cheap fuel. Nations are addicted to the stuff which is why the dealers can charge whatever they feel like.
Directly or indirectly, everyone pays.

/and with the reports of mass graves opening in Iraq, there's plenty of excuse to make us all pay more.

Gasoline is not the oil you mention in your Boobies.

Cyclometh: Heh. Glad I drive a Volt. Haven't bought gas in over six months and only twice in the last year.


Curious: won't the gas go bad? considering plug in hybrid vs full electric in the next three years or so.

/new workplace has electric vehicle free charging via solar panels. True zero emissions!

Considering your time span specified, I would go full electric. Ranges will be rapidly riding in the next three years as other companies prepare for the gen 3 Tesla. Next version if the leaf should have around 150 miles.

way south: How did those panels get to your house?Magic?

I drove the 30 miles to the solar panel factory and picked them up. Two blocks down from there, was the inverter manufacturer, and all the installation hardware came from local manufacturers. Hell, even the steel in the mounts, and raw silicon in the panels came from about 100 miles away. And since the entire region is mostly hydro power, even the raw energy input was almost entirely carbon free. Sure, there was a combustion truck or two that may have been involved with transport of one raw material or another, but 95% of the energy involved was fossil fuel free. If you pay attention to sourcing local materials, it isn't that hard. At least in a state that cares about supporting local manufacturing.

I love all the farkers here saying, fark you I got mine so fark off. I'm driving an electric or I've got solar panels, you assholes don't have shiat.

Actually, I say "Fark you" too anyone who thinks they should be able to pollute for free. Whether or not I got mine.

That would really be the best thing for this country in the long run.  Can you imagine the investment in alternative energies if fossil fuel costs tripled?  A solar panel on every house, new nuc facilities would be built, it would finally be profitable to collect the massive amount of natural gas that now is just burned in the field.  Hell, we'd be energy independent within 5 years and could be totally green within 20.  To bad the politicians don't have the guts to let it happen.


Sure and for those 5 years the economy is utterly ruined, unemployment will be sky high and there won't be any money to buy the green technology.  I like it!  Let's do it.  You go first.

Hollie Maea: I can't think of a single English word that people make a bigger deal about knowing than "fungible".

Get over yourselves; damn near everyone knows that stupid word.  Learn to use Nauseated/Nauseous correctly and you can start feeling proud of yourself.


Please. Most people can't use less/fewer correctly. What makes you think that using nauseated/nauseous correctly is even an option?
