It's also reliability that is boosting Toyota.

Rumors are now circulating that big oil will lower gas prices before the fall election to 2 bucks per gallon in order to help their favorite politicians retain control of congress.

Voters may not buy that scam even if they could actually lower the price to two. Most people suspect the price would soar after the fall election. Towards 4 dollars per gallon?

All it takes is a few storms in the gulf and bad news in the middle east. Then record oil industry profits will be on track for '07.

I feel for Detroit, but they made their choices. I've got some amount of respect for Toyota and Honda for looking beyond next quarter's profits and designing with a longer term view.



It looks as though other car companies are jumping on board with alternative sources of energy.....this could directly affect the gains in near future.
