I'm sure it is. When have you ever seen a "new and improved" anything go down 
in price. 

I just hope it is truly better for the environment, and will greatly reduce 
our reliance on other country's oil, and the sooner the better. Though, they're 
making too much money now to give much thought to a quick changeover. Is it 
cheaper to make ethanol than gasoline, energy-wise? Still requires some kind of 
finite resource to refine it, right?

I whole-heartedly agree. If I had my way, I'd be doing like Greg and 
bicycling to work, but  folks who do more than the speed limits and the number of dead 
"critters" in and along the roads I travel and a couple of other factors, 
give me pause. So I conserve in other ways.
