#1 big oil companies wont allow anyone to mess with their profit margin, even the U.S. Govt. hasnt been able to control Big oil in that respect. They shut congress down everytime congress starts to question their profit margins. Most of that is probably due to the fact that a majority of representatives have had their hand in the pocket of big oil for campaign contributions at one time or another. Less fuel sales would be less profit and I believe they will go to the consumer to make it up somehow.
#2 everytime prices rise gasoline use declines and when questioned about it oil companies use the excuse that declining gasoline sales caused them to raise prices, kinda like a dog chasing it's tail.
My fear is if CNG use gets a foot hold and beats out oil use it could follow the trend that oil has set over the last 100+ years.
Yea were not far from Dallas, the closest CNG station to me is about 21 miles away in a direction I rarely travel, the truck I was using CNG in wasnt street legal so a trip to refill involved getting the truck on the trailer, hauling it through Dallas traffic, then back. I dont go into Dallas unless I have to so it became to big of a hassle.

Maybe that article was comparing a 40mpg hybrid to a 40mpg non-hybrid in which case I would expect the emissions to be essentially the same. I could be wrong, though. If comparing a 40mpg hybrid to an 80mpg non-hybrid (if such a thing existed), I would expect the non-hybrid to have less carbon emissions than the hybrid. Basic math to me. If you have a link to it, I wouldn't mind reading it
