I know that they created an engine for cars that runs purely on water in the 80's but it was hushed up real quick and most of the evidence along with the scientist were quietly put away just so that the money would keep on rolling in from oil.
No, they dont. Many people believe the oil companies are making huge profits right now.* That is majorly FALSE.
The oil companies are not making as much as they used to. People dont drive as much as they want, they dont go on vacations or visit friends if they aren't within walking distance. If no one drives as much as they used to, then how are the oil companies making more if people are spending less?
You are right about the Government getting money out of this, its due to the high taxes they charge the oil companies. But your wrong (again) about that car that ran on water. Listen carefuly, what do you think they used to fuel steam engines
? WATER!!! The only reason the scientists stoped working on that subject was because they knew they were NOT progressing in thechnilogical advancments!!! GAH!
*KEEP IN MIND: Many people do not realize that the profits that are shown by the oil companies on how much they made is GLOBAL PROFITS, meaning they're not only getting money from the U.S., they're getting it from several other counties. One of them happens to be China.
