The world’s demand for oil seems insatiable; it’s supply that wobbles. Although the price is slightly more settled than it has been of late, it remains at about $80 to $90 a barrel. Filling your tank is expensive and it’s not going to get cheaper.

It was the Seventies oil crisis that caused the world to look seriously at fuel-saving cars and this century’s similar crisis has done the same. In the last few years we’ve seen a huge boom in hybrids, electric cars and all the derivations thereof.

Part of that fall is motivated by legislation. The European Union mandates average corporate CO² emissions of 130g/km by 2015 and 95g/km by 2020, which means conventional engines have become a lot cleaner, but more expensive.
