"The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they know about what they imagine they can design"--F.A. Hayek
With the gas prices currently on a steady ascent the idea of finding alternative means for fuel seems very inviting. Crude oil is definantly a large percentage of our gas purchase but I don't think we can separate our purchase of gas with our purchase of curde oil with taxes as a constant. The other alternative would be to rely on alternative fuel means. However, I wonder if other sources of energy would end up costing the same or more to implent anyway. Either way, we will definantly need to buckle down for the increasing gas prices.
