    H20 Vehicles running hydrogen would solve the oil issue but there isn't enough water around. Everyone would be sinking wells and then drying up all of the acquifers and reservoirs. Desalinization plants would be required to draw off the ocean water. Add transport to the now dry midwest and we are probably no better off than oil.

    The only vehilce that will work is a self generating electric car. If we can stick 1000 songs on a half inch chip, it can be done. The day an auto manufacturer pulls that off, invest the ranch in it.

    Give it some time. $6 gas and people with pitch forks and kerosene should turn some heads. Necessity is the mother of invention (as they say). If there is a market for it and money to me made, some crazed lunatic genius will figure it out and we'll have the next Billy Boy Gates. Watch for it. Imagine if you would have invested in Microsoft in 1986 at a split adjusted price of 13 cents. It's nearly $30 now........

    The problem with oil right now is that there is no competition whatsoever from other sources. As soon as battery technology and hybrids are perfected and made cheaper, there will finally be some competition ....

    Have you ever seen this company photo from 1978?

    Big, I did answer it. The price of oil has reached the point where R&D money is flowing into alternative energy sources and more fuel efficient technologies.It is just a matter of a short time period before many of these start to hit the market and yes people will buy them.
    Instead of looking for the gloom and doom headline of the day to post try googling innovations in alternative energy and fuel efficient technologies and see the vast amount of work being done worldwide in these areas. Look at the huge amounts of investment capital flowing into these areas and tell me that the smart money just got dumb all of a sudden by investing in this market area. Change is coming. It does not matter if you choose to believe it or not. The worlds best and brightest will not be detered by your pessimism.

    Even if you have to pay 3 times more for all foreign goods? Without Saudi oil backing the dollar the dollar will drop 2-3 times from what it is now. That is my guess.

    Saudi Arabia is but one player of many that have an interest in the strenght of the dollar. It would gain nothing by attempting to destabilize the dollar and would have much to lose. They are no longer the primary oil exporter of oil to the US and as such do not hold the potential sway that they once could have used. World economy, all intertwined.

    Just for your info here are the top 15 countries that export oil to the US. Maybe we should be fearing Canada?
