Can'twait for a time where I can buy an electric car that has a 300 mile range. I went Solar on my house so the charging would be free and not one drop of gas or oil needed. I truly hate Big Oil.

Blame it on me

I can't wait for the electric vehicles to take off, so my gas can get cheaper!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
