It isn't the 60's where 6 MPG was acceptable, as long as it put down more power than the other guys.
...as sure as God made apples, any Federal gun control power grab will fail, it will fall down to the States to regulate those laws as it has been....IMHO the LS7 Camaro option will be unveiled next week at NYC. It will not be a Z/28, more along the lines of a special model, like the XM, Dusk, or other limited special production we have seen. Maybe even a 1LE performance package. Yes, it's not the 60's anymore, it's the new millenium 60's, with comfort and technology,....but.....peak oil is upon us, new energy intiatives and sources must be brought to market for our energy independance and our survival. We must get away from an uncertain world that grows more dangerous and is less friendly to our interests. We must find a way to leave behind that special interest need that we spend too much blood and treasure on..

I doubt we are at peak oil. The government just wants to force us to use renewable technologies even though they are limited and not as practical as oil.

...no, we are struggling to meet our National energy goals, and GM is in the works with the GOV to help further this independance we are striving for. Sidenote, CA shale, with the pipeline to LA/TX refinery region must be brought forth as expeditiously as possible through Congress to buy NA some time to bring cleaner more fuel efficient technology products to market. This fossil fuel energy thing is timebomb, whether or not one wants to admit to it.

It would be if people would jump on the bandwagon and run with it. I remember a few years ago, the City had a meeting and a vote was made to not build the proposed Ethanol plant here in Chesapeake. This biggest concern? The towns people didn't want their back yard smelling like french fries!!!! So that says to me that people are dumb, also resistant to change and that the "chance" of a smell put off bringing jobs to the area and cheaper fuel for our cars...dumb...

..ethanol.....corn....food....not sustainable for long term fuel needs. Short term, the world gets larger, the food needs get bigger, we can't grow our way out of this using soil and crops.....a freakin' National Energy Inititive needs to be dictated by the Executive Office, only problem is there's no one behind the helm to steer it.....

To answer the OP's original question, I'd think soon. Then again....that's what I think.
