Keeping the $ Local

John Scalzi says of Wired's article, "The story opens with a car running on soybean oil, which will no doubt please my neighbors, who plant soybeans. I'm pleased to, since as I said before, ultimately I'd rather have my gas money go next door than overseas."

Indeed! And I'd rather have my gas money go to a renewable energy source than one due to expire in several decades:
The world's oil reserves are up to 80 percent less than predicted, a team from Sweden's University of Uppsala says. Production levels will peak in about 10 years' time, they say... Oil production levels will hit their maximum soon after 2010 with gas supplies peaking not long afterwards, the Swedish geologists say. At that point prices for petrol and other fuels will reach disastrous levels."
