11. Hybrids will need to be incorporated into the mainstream...
Once the oil supply runs out. I dont believe consumer demand is THAT much higher than it was a couple of years ago. I'd like to know what is really going on? Eventually we won't have to depend on 'foreign oil'. There probably won't be any.
