Subject: RE: BS: gas prices
Well, of course. As I said before, it is not in the Petrol. Industries (Amoco, Exxon, Mobile, Phillips,Texaco, Conoco, et. al. )finacial interests to have alternative fuels available. It is also not (apparently) in the US Gov'mts interets to develop alternitives--they (IT) have too much invested in the petroleum industsry to want to investigate other alternatives. Sort of like the tobacco industry in the US.....real hypocritical situations, both of them.

Let's hear it for government subsidies.....
