You can get full synthetic oil. If we ever ran out of dino-juice I'm sure they will just mass produce the synthetic stuff in labs.

X3333 YAYS!~ thankies ^^ i dun feel so worried about it now~ maybe it was just some kind of stupid rumor XDDD maybe they're just telling that so that they could make the price of gas go up!!! O_o possible, scarce things, like gas, when it runs out the price goes high... but... if it IS going scarce that is...

Mmmmm, well there is only so much fossil fuel on earth, it is a LIMITED resource (and yes, more could be made naturally but that takes thousands of years or something like that; too long to be feasible as an option) so it makes sense that we will run out eventually and as to how soon... well population is always growing and I believe in Asia more people are using cars. And as the supply gets thinner the price will go up to the point where gas is a luxury, I'm assuming. Because sure there may be enough for "x" amount of years but at some point gas will just be too expensive for the average Joe but I'm assuming there will be a practical alternative by then (and hopefully something that is equivalent in terms of results; because I needs me a fast car haha or at least one that isn't slow as a snail). Even today if you only make minimum wage and you have to commute???? forget about it; your losing a good part of your income right there so it is a bit scary to see how things will turn out for the US and the world in terms of gas.

Well the bigger picture to look at is if we run out of gasoline doesnt that mean we're out of petroleum too? The modern world wouldn't be able to function. You know how many things are made with petroleum products? Pretty much most of the stuff you use everyday.

Scary stuff.

EDIT

Why do we need to invade Iraq for oil? According to wikipedia, we produce the third largest amount of oil while Iraq is at #15.

My teacher told me that after 28 more years, there wouldn't be a single source of gasoline left... what are we gonna do,if we don't have any gasoline to fuel our cars with!? can't anyone tell me that my dreams of becoming the fastest racer is still going to come true...? XD anyways share your opinions here!~ ^^

~Sorrow~


Fastest racer?

Do you just step on the gas full force to do it?
Get a brick and lay it down all the way on the gas pedal. Voila! Fast.





You can take that dream and shove it!!

Its all BS like global warming. The media knows that to get people to think about alternatives (probable payed by GM and Ford to indirectly advertise their hyfag SUV) by saying there is far less fuel than there really is. If we were really running low on fuel dont you think that gas would be way higher than 5$ a gal in the US to save what we have left not nearly $1.70 a gal average US?
