Well, I hope you are not in charge of planning for your organizaton. Even if the CAFE standards are five years away, the car has to be designed beginning now, then come tooling costs, and testing and, and, and....Rational managers don't get terrified first, they plan and cost out their plans, then they get terrified. You can do better posting.

Gee, and imagine that, the public is demanding exactly what the CAFE standards are going to be mandating. If the car companies are terrified of offering their customers exactly what they're demanding, then good riddance to them. Buh bye

everyone knows that the real puppetmaster behind the oil companies is Overlord Zargax of Petticox 5. Exxon mobil, Shell, Texico, Chevron, BP all report to Overlord Zargax so all this talk of evil oil companies inflating prices and faking supply issues is flerbelgleek. Thats petticoxian for "partially true"

Now my retarded off the cuff rant about a space alien controling oil companies is pretty silly, right? Well, its not anymore silly in believing that oil companies had nothing to do with the incredible price hike.
