    Reality speaks louder than words here . . . OPEC by consistently raising oil prices by cutting production, to cushion and save their own asses, are forcing freight back to the rails, Closing GM and its Humburbans and Escalades, and promoting Yaris, VW and Smart cars. Given built in planned obsolescence and the current rising oil price threat from OPEC and the Saudis, our highways will be transport truck-free and “Big vehicle” -free in about four or five years! I look forward to my three wheeler, carbon fiber bodied, polymer composite re-enforced for lighter weight, bio-turbo H2 boosted diesel/electric plug-in super commuter car. I expect to travel at 140 kph (80 mph) and get 100 mpg for a mortgage busting, life-style enhancing, boost to my budget – no Hummburbans in sight, no transport trucks left on the roads, and all big cars reduced to rusting piles of hardened rubber and glass! I will no longer be enslaved and over-taxed by big oil, or big steel – Make way for an Eco-happy 21st century!
