Those "results' will taste very different to you before, long before, they get to the yummm stage. They may even taste like ash.

That's dangerous way of life.

No i'm not talking about importing more than half of the petrol you use,

you are not supposed to use electronic devices - such as cameras - on a gas station!

I've been saying this to people for awhile now and they always look at me like I've grown a third eye, or immediately just assume I'm being another smug Prius driver trying to rub it in. While I won't deny that is a part of it (I mean, come on), the main reason I love expensive petrol is that it is doing wonders for the plug in vehicle movement because suddenly more and more people are interested in alternatives and are learning about plug in hybrids and electric cars.

If it weren't for expensive gas, we probably wouldn't be looking forward to the Chevy Volt, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, the Volvo ReCharge, and other exciting vehicles simply because there would be no interest or demand for them. Now if only we could still buy EV1s and RAV4-EVs!

(shameless "plug": if anyone's interested in learning more about or doing more for the advancement of EVs then head over to PlugInAmerica.com)

I have to agree with you, even though filling up my GMC Suburban is getting more and more painful.

Hopefully the market (mfg + consumers) will react in a way that benefits us in the long run. Today Ford gave an early warning about changes needed in their vehicle lineup: http://biz.yahoo.com/ap/080522/ford_cuts.html.

What is a personal account on effects of high gasoline prices to a family or individual?
In other words, how do high gasoline prices effect you or the average person?
