What do the odds look like? Are we really prepared for the near future? Oil markets are very competitive, and we are starting to realize that "We" are not the only persons inhabiting this world. I think that we're behind the curve, and there will be some big problems. What is your plan for alternatives to fuel costs, or shortages? I'd like to think that I'll add a wood stove to back up my propane furnace, but I'm a bit lazy so I'll just keep some supplies set back for the "Worst of Times", and bide my time. I have been checking into the corn burning stoves, and they seem to be an option. Automobiles, and commuting is another matter, and I've seen some research demo's on HHO, Hydrogen fuel production testing that looks promising. Home heating, electricity, commuting costs, what's your plan?
