    I just read that Rita is the 3rd most intense hurricane in history, and I hope everyone's okay. We're all likely to feel this:

    Isn't it about time Americans paid for gas what it costs the world?

    We do. Iraq is costing us about $5.5 billion a month.

    There have been reports around here (Ontario) that some gas stations have already jacked the price up to $2/ litre. On my way home, the line ups were long, but prices still hovering around $1/litre.

    P.S. Beckers, it's not that we in N. America are paying too little, it's that you're already paying too much!

    Have you heard of the guy who put some extra litium batteries in his hybrid car and got some 200+ miles to the gallon? It's a true story and I wish I could find a link. Wow...200+ miles TO A GALLON. That's a revolution.

    Then there would be a lot of logic in paying for Iraq through extra gas tax, -$3 per gallon oughta do it.

    Steve, I recall reading that it cost a fortune to hotrod his car that way - something like an extra $15,000 or something. While I don't remember the details, it sounded somewhat impractical.

    But we have to do something.

    Okay . Found it.

    Actually it costed this guy in particular $3000 (US) and he only got 80 mpg.

    Here's the link

    http://apnews.myway.com/article/20050814/D8BV9N2G0.html

    It did mention that some experiments actually got 250 mpg.

    Anyway, it's all possible. Just when will it catch on?
