the bonus is that it screws the oil companies over.
There you have it then.
The oil is still there but we know it's finite.
Do you not think that those companies have a massive say on the way things are run, you bet they do.

If we can produce our own electricity at home to charge our cars, then how do they compete with that?

The sun is free.

They can't but we are talking about those energy companies now and have a massive say in things.
It's more complicated than finding oil and turning it into petrol and if nobody wants petrol then the oil wells shut.
Anyway, isn't petrol just a by-product or waste from the oil?

They will continue to burn the oil and damage the environment.
It's not called black gold for nothing, it's global currency in some way.

Very complicated because those with most money have the most influence.
The oil companies don't just oil the industry, they have their hands in a lot of other pies.

It's all about money and whoever has the most has most control.

It's only recently that I've noticed what a penny on a litre of fuel could amount to on a full tank or say over a month.
The difference between petrol at 99p and £1.28 therefore is shocking :o
