Thread Name: BS: gas prices
Subject: RE: BS: gas prices
Lets look at some successes and then extrapolate ahead. Even an SUV today gets better gas mileage than the standard 4 door sedan of the 60's. The tires last longer, the interval between oil changes is longer, and they most certainly pollute less. I think we have every reason to believe the improvements will continue over the next 30 years as well.
Please, all, don't think I am defending pollution or environmental misuse. Just look at how far we have come and lets hold out some reasonable hope for the future.
