You can get more than 30mpg in your car if you have the amount of money
it takes to do any of those things you listed above. (Even a fraction of
that money will do)  It's the same answer to the question: 'why doesn't
every last home have a fiber-optics connection? We have the technology!'

I won't disagree that there are many political reasons behind rising
prices. Nor will I disagree that more should be done to increase
transportation efficiency.  But you're barking up the wrong tree(s) and
in the wrong forum.

Has there ever been a PLUG-OT mailing list?
