Four reasons why I hate cheap gas:
- Buying gas today is easier on our wallets, but burning it is not any easier on the environment. People tend to overlook this when gas prices drop.
- When oil products are relatively cheap, the cost savings of recycling plastic are diminished or nonexistent. This discourages recycling.
- Cheap gas means that more people will choose the large suburban rather than the hybrid car. The atmosphere is crying.
- Investors/ companies that were going to put their money into Green technology might reconsider because the payback period will be longer if gas/oil is cheap.
