No worries. Tesla in Fremont, CA is expanding. Tesla's mega battery factory in Nevada.
VW and Volvo are going to stop building gasoline/diesel powered vehicles soon.
Most other car manufacturers are ramping up for EV models or else China will enter the market.
News came out yesterday that USA in now the #1 crude oil producer.

Why are we digging for more oil?

LOVE Michigan. Wouldn't live anywhere else. You're right though. Living here does toughen you up sometimes, which is why I didn't turn out to be a snowflake...you know the type.

'Cuz you still need something to grease the wheel bearings on that Tesla. "Cuz the Tesla still has lots of parts that are sourced from oil or require oil to be produced. Because the industrial operations that produce all those parts on the Tesla need oil to function.

Full synthetic oils are used these days in most CNC machines (we own quite a few), and we also use them in our new delivery vehicles. Of my three cars, two use synthetic blends ('02 & '04!).

Most of all, it's ICE engines that use refined crude oils by the shiploads and are going to be replaced by EV's. City of Oakland is buying EV buses with enough charge to run an entire day.

Once again, VW is going to stop using ICE engines and so is Volvo (now Chinese owned).
