you are kidding me right. All the big companies (BP) are promoting alternative energy. Because it is profitable for them. American are not dumb, and the middle east (opec) are feeling the pressure. They are lowering oil prices b.c they can feel the pressure. We will countinue to push (natural gas) b/c it is clean and green. And as along as we do this the middle east will have to keep lowering oil prices, BECAUSE THEY CAN FEEL THE PRESSURE. America will be an 75% indepedent energy country by 2070. Change is good! americans can feel it. You just wait till the debates when the president candiates talk about NG. you just wait, we are going to be rich!
