In 2010 GM is coming out with their Volt. Also, others car companies have electric cars in development or in production. Timing is everthing. Electric Utilities could be a better and safer investment. I would not recommend a buy any oil companies at these prices. They may go down as fast as they went up. However, check out this link for a stock list with one oil and other links. Diversity some of each at the right price is good.
