The gas price in Columbus, OH last week could be as low as $1.74/gal on Sinclair and 161. With a price this low, I doubt the urge to implement a plan to develop alternative energy sources can sustain for long. The current financial crisis creates more needs for federal money than ever but on the other hand the federal government has very limited resources as borrowing money become harder when other countries start to their own stimulus efforts.
