They wouldn't do that, would they?
You are a very funny guy, Craig....your question just popped off a 10watt lightbulb for me as i just realized the actual truth about how different energy sources fluctuate in popularity based on the support or lack thereof from the government. Very astute observation Craig. How do we as consumers choose the 'energy du jur' for our present and future needs for heating our homes, powering our transportation, etc when the marketplace is artificially manipulated by government intervention, and the chosen flavor seems to change so often...yikes.
