Subject: And why is that
In reply to: GeneVT 's message, "SPAM" on - Tuesday - 04/22/08 - 8:14am

as a poster on this board and a Mariner 40 owner I am not sure what portion of my post constitutes spam. We are all concerned about the rising costs of fuel whether it be for our boats or our cars. You see it as spam I see it as a suggestion to help ourselves. I guess it is in the eye of the beholder.

Well I for one am disgusted with the insane profits the oil companies are making, and there should be some kind of limit, like most local utilities. But the fact remains that there is a finite amount of oil, and we gotta start being realistic. China needs a lot of oil now, India is starting to need more, Africa is next. We're all using more! Keeping prices artifically low will only encourage us all to continue as we are. High prices energizes alternative energy sources, but it didn't have to come to this mad scramble for oil. If we had done something back in the 70's, after the embargo, we would be much better off now. Imagine if all the money thrown away in Iraq was spent on alternative energy! What happened to Fusion?
