    I would cry. Heavily..then I would take off on my girlfriends pink bicycle and ride 80 miles a day to work and back. Hoard all the gas I possibly could and drive while nobody else had gas..when I ran out I would find a diesel engine and convert to veggie oil so I can smell like french fries :D. The shotgun idea wouldn't work to well for me seeing as I don't have any neighbors for 6 miles

    Who is it, Venezuela I think that has converted all their stations gas supply to a sugar cane bio fuel. Don't understand why we haven't done something like that yet. I would convert to lp though. I thought about doing that anyway.

    Default Out of gas and oil

    I know oil is not a renewalable resource and is in limited supply, but does anyone really know how much we have. I'm not so sure we can trust those figues throw at us by the science and government sectors. We must have some decent reserves by Florida and both coast lines. China is investing tons of money in Cuba to slant drill into our continental shelf to get at it.

    I don't see any great strides or desire to advance past the petroleum base vehicles we use today. Battery power is way to limited in power and drive time. I also think these battery factories will become very dangerous to the enviroment. They are dealing with some very toxic chemicals.

    Maybe we need to nationalize the oil companies and protect our own rather than sell to the highest bidder or commodies trader.

    I don't have to do anything. I have two Chevy vehicles that already run on compressed natural gas (CNG). These vehicles came straight from Chevrolet this way and run flawless on both gasoline and CNG. In fact, in Utah, CNG is only $1.27/gal. That is a third the price of gasoline right now. Back in 2008 when gasoline was $4/gal., CNG in Utah was $0.63/gal. No that is not a typo. Savings back then were awesome. Now I am saving about $10 - $12 everytime I fill my Cavalier up with CNG (every other day). I filled my Chevy truck up with CNG the other day - 18 gallons cost me $23.

    Actually the EPA just released new regulations on the matter. It used to be very expensive to get an aftermarket conversion EPA certified, but now pretty much anything outside its useful life (older than 10 years) is free game. You just have to run a gas analyzer test to ensure that the vehicle still meets EPA standards for both gasoline and CNG. If the vehicle is between 2 and 10 years old you do have to run an OBD test and an Evap test. If you are going to have your vehicle converted, make sure the person doing the conversion KNOWS what they are doing. The installation of the high pressure components MUST comply with NFPA 52. I have seen my share of shady conversions that would scare even the McGyvers of the world.
