And by precious babies I mean our cars. We try and stay away from being political at Autoblog but there's no arguing that fossil fuels of any kind run out and some say oil could start a decline soon, very soon. How the auto industry goes about providing awesome performance vehicles that get unheard of mileage is another question. But with the success of fairly unproven hybrids, I'm sure automakers know there's money to be had in being frugal with the mpg. People will probably still pay through the nose for certain gas hogs.
