Gas prices on the rise. Again.

The price of gas is going up again.

Does this mean that the sale of gas-guzzlers will go down? Time will tell, but in the meantime, an aeronautic giant is testing ways to avoid petroleum based fuel.

The company conducted a test flight last week. A Boeing 737 flew two hours over Houston on a mixture of kerosene and algae. Pretty cool.

Dwindling gas prices = higher truck and SUV sales


When gas was over $4 a gallon just a year ago, hybrids and other alternate/fuel efficient vehicles were all the rage. Everyone wanted them.

Now that gas has hit a less financially crippling price, many of the former prospective hybrid buyers are going back to big gas guzzlers. Very few care about the environment more than their pocket books.
