  1. It will be hard to reach this kind of day in age where all is green. Its hard to reach because it is extremely difficult to put together a perfect equilibrium of the gas prices, and those vehicles in competition with vehicles that are nature friendly. I say we find a way to go completely green without having to blow up mountain tops daily in the country just to fuel a few cars. Yup. But its hard. We would have to find alot of new metal resources if we want to produce a whole new age of cars.
