you think $3 for a gallon is bad?

In Britain we pay £8.50 ($15) for a gallon

My whole point is that with gas at $3 a gallon now, 1.75 of that is taxes. Who is to say that 1.50 a gallon won't get taxed through the roof.

Drop the taxes and sell regular gas at 1.50 and I will be happy.

My first tank of gas was 11 gallons, I still have the receipt, and it cost me 9.57 to fill up. Now it costs me 33 dollars. Big difference.

Wait...hold on here....No carbon emissions?


I don't know what these guys are smoking but any time you burn something you get carbon emissions. So unless they've found a way to make a gasoline that, when burned in a standard engine, just sends the CO2 produced into the ether, it's full of -beep-.

Jesus Christ!
Thats totally absurd!
And I thought that fuel was extremely expensive in my country at 6.1 dollars a gallon for the good diesel fuel. ($6.4 for top gasoline)
...but then again, the minimum wage is $215.

It just means that there aren't any carbon emissions from the manufacture of the fuel. You still emit CO2 when you burn it.

Lets see....
$1.50/gallon for "synthetic gas"...
but what about the car itself?
The elitist Prius is about 30K as far as I know.

Early indications are that the fuel can be used in existing internal combustion engined vehicles without engine modification.
So...if this IS possible then it may be look great for those that can't afford Hybrids.
Yet, I don't really care about the tree hugging stuff, all I care is whether or not it will impact my wallet.

Not always. Combustion only needs to involve oxygen. For example, combustion of hydrogen would only produce water. As long as you don't involve carbon at all in the fuel, you won't get carbon dioxide.

Gasoline = Carbon + Hydrogen

This new fuel won't contain Carbon at all so there's no Carbon to be emitted.

No.
