http://www.whittierdailynews.com/opinions/ci_3430622 I don't know how many of you have been watching the news lately, but Ford has just laid off some 30,000 workers. Both Ford and GM have now laid off about 30,000 workers a piece. Kind of depressing, but what the article says holds true; Both of these companies have been heavily focusing on their gas-hog SUV's, and with the way gas prices have been rising over the past few years, the lure of the SUV is becoming less and less. I don't know if Chrysler has realized this or not, because the only SUV they have is the Durango, but I can't imagine the new Hemi cars being real easy on the fuel bill either. The big three are going to have to come to the realization that driving these monster gas hogs is not going to last forever; they need to get on the alternate fuel source route. This is were diesel comes in, because although diesel is a fossil fuel, you can subsitute vegetable oil for diesel. ALSO, heres the key. By converting the diesels to run on vegetable oil, you also support the american farmer, and stop our dependance on middle eastern oil. Its the corn in mid-western america thats going to help fuel the veggie oil thing.
