    What is being done about gas prices?

    I've heard of various alternatives to gasoline prices: Corn, switchgrass and hydrogen, to name a few. Here, in Utah, I don't see anything happening, and the prices continue to soar. Any ideas?

    Prices will continue to soar. Oil companies are in a great position; demand now far outweighs supply since peak oil has come and gone. As long as there's still oil, it's a perfect market!

    believe it or not, rising gas prices is a good thing. first off, it will cut down on people wasting gas for useless things and secondly, by seeing the cost rise, it will cause people to create and use different fuel sourse. in the U.S., gas is consumed at about 30 times per person higher then anywhere else on the planet , so hopefully this rise in prices will cause that to be cut down dramatically

    There is a very good alternative coming soon. Natural gas cars. http://www.naturalgas-cars.com/ GM just signed a deal with Westport, a major maker of natural gas engines. Natural gas buses are already used in most major cities. See http://www.naturalgas-vehicles.com/natu … buses.html

    There are a lot of alternative energy cars coming out, I believe the Nissan Leaf is 100% electric powered. That's definitely going to be the way the car manufacturers go. As for people who require trucks and larger engined cars, well they'll probably use natural gas or a hydrogen based fuel. I know diesel engines are the ones that can be converted to run off of vegetable oil or something like that, or corn or whatever. Maybe those trucks and stuff will all be converted in the future to run off alternatives. But there will always be some need of gas, so we need to find a way to artificially create it as oppose to taking it out of the ground.
