    Where there is a lot of work that goes into making the gas that we put in our trucks, the tech that is floating around out there could take us back to paying $2.00 for a gallon of gas and nobody would be hurting, worker, company, or customer. There are completely automated systems the still need people to run them but cuts your actual direct cost by somewhere around 68%. With less direct cost, that means that your incur a smaller indirect cost like your overhead and G&A. Having to pay less to keep your plants moving means that the oil companys can make even more money. The work force in the plants would stay the same, the jobs would just be different (a parallel shift, not a perpendicular shift). Furthermore, there are electric and biodiesle semis that have better fuel economy than some of the rangers on this forum. Once all is said and done, the Fed's monopoly and tax laws will kick in so as to overal, drop the price per gallon. The tech is out there, and I have seen it and helped develope structural parts of the system, it's just sad that the oil company's are stuck in their old ways and do not want to upgrade.
