Getting tired of gas prices?

February 23, 2011

A guest blog by: Kelly F.

The price of gasoline climbing higher and higher is really starting to irritate me, I mean I just paid $3.07 per gallon yesterday and they say that by Memorial Day it might be as much as $4 per gallon. Who can afford to go on vacation, even if it’s driving there? Or go to the movies, even driving there? I have 2 kids in their teenage years that I cart all around town which puts me at that gas station move than I ever wanted to be and then in the not so distant future they will be driving themselves back and forth to school. Am I going to have to dip into their college fund whenever they need a tank of gas? And when they are out of college, what will the price of gas be then? It just all seems crazy to me, is there any hope in sight? So, I starting thinking “there’s got to be a better way”. If we can put a man on the moon, why is it that we have to pay these ridiculous prices for gasoline?

How about corn oil for vehicles?

Right now, you can convert your vehicle properly and safely by converting your engine to run on straight vegetable oil. Why don’t we start making more cars that run on vegetable oil? Wouldn’t this stimulate the economy, producing fuel efficient vehicles? Wouldn’t it be a win/win situation as it helps out local communities by boosting farming, production and transportation. Whether it’s used oil, from our own restaurants, like Mom and Pops Diners or McDonald’s we should all consider turning waste into bio diesel. Sounds like a no brainer to me!

More of a win/win would then be to donate your old vehicle to be used/scrapped/recycled to make way for the new and improved Corn Oil running vehicles and by helping your favorite charity at the same time.

Let’s start educating our teenagers now to deal with all types of energy efficient solutions so that by the time they are out of college they will have money left in their college fund to actually pay for college and not that tank of gas they needed to get there.
