This is getting to be ridiculous. Gas just keeps going up and it's never going to come down. People cannot keep paying $4+ a gallon. Something's gotta give. And to anyone who says, "Well people in Europe pay $6+ a gallon!" this is my response: Europe actually has public transportation. There are trains, buses, subway stations, etc. They don't need to drive cars! People in Utah can't live like that! There are no trains or metros here! The sad truth is you need a car to get places. And yet we still can't drill in Alaska. We're heading toward a crisis, but oh no, we need to save the lemmings or whatever the heck lives there. Gah, stupid environmentalists.
Honestly though, with all the technology we have nowadays, you'd think we could come up with a solution to this problem. Here's your conspiracy theory for the day: I bet someone's paying off the scientists who've already discovered it. Ok, not really, but it is a little frustrating. The best thing we can come up with is fuel from corn, which apparently creates another problem in and of itself? There's got to be something better out there.
Think about it, think, think about it. :)
