were screwed :(

I think its pretty sweet that all these manufacturers are going to be putting diesel engines in various vehicles.. like volkswagan, BMW, ect. but all this goodness got me thinking. with more people driving diesel its raising up the demand. higher demand raises fuel prices. am i wrong? im afriad that by something like 2012 prices will be very high because more people will be driving diesel cars.

so ya i think were screwed

I can't see many people getting rid of their hybrids or 40 mpg vehicles for a diesel, especially since we are paying waaaaaaaay more per gallon than gas.

Alot of these diesels are getting in excess of 40 mpg. They are cleaner burning and all around a better choice vehicle. Diesels are 40% more efficient that gas burners. SO people will be trading in there mustanges and impalas that get 20 mpg to buy one that gets 40 mpg or more so esentially this should lead to less fuel consumption.
My uncle got a VW passat wagon IDI and gets 46 mpg on the highway. Pretty sweet.
I also think this bio fuel from algea will take off in no time...those gas burners will be out of luck there.
