who does your math? 1.50/liter=11clams/gallon

One pound fifty pence sterling per litre

4.5 Litres to the gallon

4.5 x 1.5 = Six pounds seventy five pence

UK sterling to US dollar conversion = TEN Dollars Eighty One cents

I see nothing wrong with my Maths...perhaps you do things differently over there.  ;)

Nice to see you back NEAL

The math I'm interested in is that our fuel cost has doubled.
I suspect that there is a big difference in lifestyle between the US and UK.
I commute daily over an hour each way to work. And many many others in this town do likewise.
Double the cost for gas turns into a big expense.
In a lot of cases it effects people lifestyle. Some will need to make sacrifices.
No vacation this summer with the family. That sort of thing.
I'm not to that point yet but it does add up in a hurry.

Oh and as far as the reality creation...
It does grind my gears when the excuse they use for higher gas prices is something about being nervous over something or other happening in the mideast. No real effect on supply. Just the fear that something might happen later.

Thanks its nice to be back
Maybe you did have the necessary means to go to college, but it's common knowledge that Imperial Gallons will not fit in North American cars. (because of where the driver sits)
Use 3.78 as a conversion factor. That's a foul. Mark it, well not zero, but ...

Now back to the main point.

Run cars on hydrogen (waste products = H2O = water).

Hydrogen fuel cells are a possibility but remember the Hindenburg ;)
I think it is one of the Japanese car makers who are planning a car where you buy the car and rent the fuel cell as it needs replaced every 5 years. Not sure how they can be recycled though?

This is why I hate the modern monetary systems, they are so easily manipulated. The gas industry of the western world is a perfect example. I've worked at the same gas station 7 years and have watched the manipulations and bs over and over. Sadly the current reason for the increasing US gas prices isn't some imaginary "impending strike" like you all in the UK are experiencing, but the fact it's a election year, although no one will say that's the official reason. I saw the same exact increase back in 2008 which was also an election year.

Yeah I believe that is the future.
Electric cars won't ever be popular. 12 hours or more to recharge just won't cut it.
And hybrids are really disappointing. They would make sense if they got 50 miles/gallon or more.
 
With a "Manhattan project" for hydrogen fuel cell cars it could happen. Gotta get the infrastructure in place for refill stations and the car companies need to be on board also.
There are still some things to iron out. Cost and reliability at high and low temperature are a big problem now.

Most people don't realize that hydrogen fuel cell cars are electric. But it's like a battery that never goes dead as long as you keep feeding it hydrogen. But as of now a lot of the parts won't last very long. And they are still expensive to replace.
