Will Americans Buy Toyota Motor Corporation's Hydrogen Car?

In general . . . No, they won't. They will be way too expensive and there is not refueling infrastructure. You are much better off buying a Volt or a Tesla.

Underdogs Have Puncher's Chance to Upend SolarCity's Dominance

America May Have Just Unveiled a New Weapon to Combat Russia's Action in Ukraine

We are the 2nd largest oil importer (China just passed us). Russia is the largest or 2nd largest oil exporter. The thought of us using oil as a weapon is laughable. I'm amazed that people are ignorant enough to believe it is even

Will Gas Prices Keep Rising?

In the long-term . . . yes. In the short-term . . . no. There is still growth to be had in the shale fields. But the oil companies have slowed down their investments and the decline rates will catch up on them. I'd say oil prices

Get On the Solar Bandwagon Before It's Too Late

The best investment you can make in solar is installing it on your own roof-top. But don't use a solar-lease, those are a rip-off. Pay cash or take out a home equity loan. Or best . . . self-install if you are a DIYer. It is not

It is probably getting close to a peak because they can't really raise the price up much higher without battery electric vehicles becoming much more practical for most car drivers. As is, an EV can be cheaper than a gas car when you
