I missed this topic somehow. Interesting data. It's amazing what a difference 5-10 years make. I remember $.90 gallon gas. When fossil fuels were that cheap, I understand the resistance to change. Today, it seems rather stupid.

Vermont is supposedly the most liberal state in the union, but their efforts to build wind turbines have been consistently shot down by the nimby-ism. Maybe $3.10 isn't enough...
