    I took a trip in my Roadster early this morning to try out a new camera, and I found this:

    It was too poetic to pass up.

    If anybody has a Tesla in Williams, AZ this might make a nice backdrop. I hope to see a lot of ICE museums over the remainder of my lifetime.

    In 1978, Kerr-McGee lost a seminal case that enshrined the right of Native Tribes to tax fossil fuel extractors on reservation lands.

    I would LOVE to get an old Texaco pump like that and wire it up as a HPWC.

    Took these on a trip to Spokane. Abandoned gas stations make for fun futurist pictures.

    A good stopping place for tree huggers?

    Awesome posts here. Thanks. What makes me crazy is that the vast majority of people don't realize what is happening. They are just completely unaware, stunning!

    This is a nice pic! Unluckily in Italy most of the people are still in love with gasoline. We have a long way to go to get rid of gasoline.

    It's already over, we've passed the tipping point where EVs could be stopped and people still focus on nonsense like mileage standards for 2040, etc. It's amazing.
