I really hope they do it world wide because here you have to pay $7.76007 per gallon...

But why would a business give you a raise when people are happy with any job they can get currently despite the less benefits/pay. Repair those bridges/dams/roads otherwise we'll have projects for the working class in the next years.

Oh and $1.50 gas would be amazing, ~$16 a tank vs. ~$36 @ $3.19

$4/gallon gas jumpstarted the recession. It very well may not have happened at all, if gas prices hadn't shot up so much. Working-class people had to suddenly spend a good portion of their income on gas, and couldn't continue to make payments on other things. Businesses had to suddenly spend more on freight to ship goods, subsequently raising the prices of goods, which subsequently means even less cash in the pocket of working-class people. Less margin in company goods meant lower profits, which meant layoffs. Etc etc...

Politicians don't seem to realize this. The general public doesn't seem to realize this, namely because the media hasn't told them. Greenies seem to think that higher gas/energy prices are a GOOD thing, because it'll help conservation. While it might help conservation in the smallest of ways, it certainly hurts production and the economy. People still need to get from A to B, and still need to heat their house.


Octane doesn't make power. Octane prevents knock. With less knock, you can tune for more power.

Some ECU's will lower timing (and thus power) if you put lower grade fuel in the car though...
Not that this is politics for any country, but the oil war has begun. I think Politicians are aware of this and are just biding time. Currently oil is sold mainly in USD, which benefits the obvious country. Even with the provocative theories we can say without a doubt that this helps our economy. So for now the US (as far as eco/corps/govt) is concerned we could give a damn less about the pricing as we are making our fill. Once this runs out we will just move on to our own reserves and continue to bank, regardless of what happens.

Don't take this out of proportion and get into the political debates behind the petro dollar or any of that. I just wanted to point out that we know why gas is expensive, we know the problems behind what we are doing. As to what the ultimate goal is, I don't really care to speculate in that as it is just speculation at this point. We don't know enough about the Govt's (or any country) long term plans. =(

[edit] This won't fly, not only are the oil companies against this but the US and probably a few other countries too. They'll gun it down and bury it so that the research doesn't continue well. Just like the.... oh yeah, just like the electric car. Or even better, the rotary engine that we've had, that was "pushed" aside by american car production.

I don't blame politics, I blame the car companies not wanting (nor caring) to actually create solutions to our average consumer problems. We don't need the media hype about getting a bigger and better car, we need a more conservative solution. Though with the companies pusing the commercial/gimmicks that we need bigger better and more I don't see this happening to the average consumer. Most people follow the hype, they become proud of a car because it's a V8 despite that it gets 17MPG. Get it off the roads and put an affordable car that gets min of 30MPG, and we've been able to do it for years but won't.

[edit] Last one for now, as the 30MPG made me realize it. You should also consider that oil production will end up becoming a less profitable business if they made these cars more affordable and have better gas mileage. I'm guessing there is some oil sponsorship going on somewhere with this too, just don't know where.

The cheapest petrol station within 20 miles is the one next to my work. Petrol is now £1.27/L now, and my car has a 42L tank. Made me shudder.

Diesel is £1.33/L.

Any info on whether or not this can be scaled up to billion barrel figures? And if it can produce diesel, kerosene, jet fuel, heating oil, etc?
