Fuel For Thought



By Eric ~ August 5th, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized.

In perusing this evening, I saw that the price of crude oil had fallen from a high watermark of $147.20/barrel to $119.17/barrel. This is, in my opinion, not a wholly good development. Make no mistake, I don’t like budgeting over $400/month for gasoline either. But, the fact of the matter is that oil is a stopgap solution. With the high price of crude/gasoline, we’re starting to see attention being paid to our consumption. Alternative fuels, even. We’re finally starting to see projects like the Chevrolet Volt, the Venture, the Smart car, and you’re seeing an explosion of motorcycles and scooters, even in cold weather climates.

Our collective memory seems to be just as poor as mine ;). We’ve seen this. We’ve seen gasoline rationing. We’ve seen high prices. We’ve then seen the price fall again, and we ramp up our consumption back up just as quickly. Will we take our eye off the ball? We’ve been watching, and pushing for better fuel economy. Pushing for better vehicles. Pushing for alternative fuel sources. Wind power and solar power are just a couple of the options out there. But, will a relaxation of fuel prices cause us to go back to our normal consumptive ways? Or can we allow the prices to come down, while continuing to push our automotive companies, our government representatives, and our energy companies for alternatives? A number of companies out there recognize the opportunity to harness the energy out there that we’ve always ignored. Florida Power and Light, for instance, has a wind energy program that is making a lot of headway. Wind and solar energy are just two sources available to us that are simply wasted. The wind is going to blow. The sun is going to shine. We might as well harvest that energy.

But, alas, it will all be for naught if we fail to remain steadfast on a path to renewable energy.
