Have you ever wondered what would happen if there was another oil shortage.Imagine going to the gas station and being turned away .Imagine paying ten maybe 15 dollars a gallon. Maybe Iran tells the United States no more oil and causes another war, maybe WORLD WAR 3. Its scary but you never know. Thats why we as a nation need to be oil dependent. We need to start producing more vehicles with alternative fuels. We need to start thinking more energy efficient. I know it will be years before every car you see coming down the street will be run without foreign oil but till that day comes we have hybrid cars.The toyota prius the best of the hybrids. It gives you 60 miles per gallon in the city and 51 on the highway, and at a price of under 22,000 its a lot of car for a great price.And if your looking for a suv hybrid , the ford escape is a perfect choice. Hopefully in the coming years before we can break away from the strangelhold we call oil , the vehicles we drive will all be hybrids.I guess until then i will do my part, and hope others will follow.
