Dear Comrade 257,
Um, I believe that electricity pre-dates gasoline as a power source. Look up: Franklin, Benjamin.
The only thing that is really “new” about electric cars is the persistency with which liberals try to impose poor engineering on to the laws of physics.
We have plenty of oil here in the U.S. if liberals- not just Obama- would let us develop and exploit it. While technically you are correct that “someday” we have to wean ourselves from oil, “someday” doesn’t have to be for another few hundred years.
