It is a free country, and I believe that the marketplace will solve the energy issues facing us.
More supplies are now cost effective to bring on line, and people are conserving more. If the prices continue to rise, alternative fuels will become more cost effective to produce.
Perhaps a competing alternative fuel will be developed out of a greed to undercut the 60 dollar pbl price that the oil companies are trying to get and that will put a ceiling on the price that they can charge?
Profit is a powerful incentive to invent, create, and produce.
