With the price of oil these days rising at an unsustainable rate, I think we all wonder what the consequences of these high prices are. Oil reached over $107 USD a barrel which is twice as high as it was even 2 years ago.
Hopefully these insainly high prices will force the automobile industry to provide consumers an alternative to the average consumer who wants a vehicle to limit dependence on oil. Unfortunately, the governments likely will need to force this by offering money or restricitions. We will see.
