Quick rant.

Its not even as bad as the government expects yet everyone has their panties in a bunch about gas prices. Its driving me nuts. Not even the price of gas has me sick of this story. The issue I have is that nobody seems to be working on alternatives. There is no commission put together to look at other options, or making hybrids even more appealing buy dropping taxes etc on them.

I heard last week on the radio that Honda is slowing production on the Accord Hybrid due to "slower than expected sales".

Uggh. What are the alternatives? I am not even sure myself but bitching that you have to pay 35.00 at the pump to fill up is not helping. On the news today they said "folks are starting to call washington d.c. to see what can be done". That makes sense...well done you fools. You are probably CEO's too. asshats.

Hybrids are not yet the solution. They are a start, but what we need are Euro style diesel investment. Look at what VW and Audi are doing. A Golf with a TDI gets better real life gas mileage than a Prius any day of the wee. Audi is winning Le Mans style races with a 10 cylinder diesel engine. A diesel winning races??? WTF? It's happening though, and we need to capitalize. If anyone is as eurocentric about their cars as I am, you would realize that not only VW & Audi are doing amazing things with diesel, the only problem is you can't buy them here. In Europe you can buy a diesel Jag, who wudda thunk it? If we could get Toyato to partner with VW to build a TDI Hybrid we'd be all set (at least until the Chinese start to buy cars in significant numbers).

PS: You're welcome
