The upside to this could be that America will find new ways to drive the economy and finally kick the oil habit. We still have a free-market mentality and there are always people who will take a risk to start a new venture. I say its time to let China choke on oil while we come up with a clean alternative and sell that to the world. Log live the electro-dollar!
With major oil exporters finally having a viable way to circumvent the petrodollar system, the U.S. economy could soon encounter severely troubled waters.
