Oil Falls to Less Than $100 a Barrel

Economic forecasters were calling for gas prices above $5 a gallon by Memorial Day. Turns out that economic forecasters share an important trait with weather forecasters. That trait being that they are wrong more often than they are willing to admit. In this case, it's a good thing.

People go to hockey games to see fights, and racing fans go to the races to see crashes. That's just the way it is. When the crashes are serious though, it doesn't leave much to laugh about.

Vanity Plates Tell Your Story?

Vanity plates are available in most states, and for a fee allow you to tell your story in seven letters or less! I've got vanity plates on both of my vehicles. Initially the cost was $35, but you get to maintain that same plate with no additional charges in upcoming years. My plate on the Solstice represents the radio station, but here are some other good examples:

Todddler’s ‘Wheels’ Almost Better Than Mine

As strollers go, this toddler has an awesome one! Nothing like the kid having a 'Caddy' for cruisin', but in my opinion, dad should have made it look like a Pontiac Solstice! I love my Solstice and it almost makes me a little jealous. Check out the ride, and what it could have been after the jump.

New Version of Flying Car Buzzes New York Auto Show

Terrafugia's Transition flying car makes it's debut at the New York City Auto Show beginning April 6th at the Javits Center. As a kid growing up and watching "The Jetsons," I figured we all would have flying cars by now. The Terrafugia Transition is street legal and recently completed it's first successful test flight. The company says the vehicle-turned-airplane will be available for sale by the year's end. If you're like me and can't help but think that you've already seen a similar vehicle in Flint, keep reading.

Workin’ At The Car Wash Blues for My ‘Baby’.

This seems to be the hardest time of the year to keep your car clean. April showers create May flowers AND muddy conditions and splash opportunities for your vehicle. Most people just pay the $5 or $6 and roll through the automated car wash, but that's not for my baby!

The Future is Now: A Real Flying DeLorean? [VIDEO]

I am a die-hard fan of the "Back To The Future" movie series.  I love the concept, the characters, and that time machine!  I was able to see a DeLorean at Back To The Bricks a few years back, and there were several of the slick sedans at last year's Bricks Flicks.

 

As much as I love the fantasy of it all, it looks like more and more of a reality.  I brought you a story a few months back about Nike producing the Air Mag, the shoes Marty McFly wore in Part 2 during a stop in 2012.  What else is a reality now?  A flying DeLorean!

Gas Prices Hit $4 a Gallon, Are You Feeling it Yet?

We've been past the $4 a gallon threshold before. Last time it happened, it was in the summer months. That made it a little easier to take, as a lot of folks hopped on motorcycles or bicycles. Many carpooled or just drove less. Vacations were taken closer to home. Demand went down and so did the price. It was just a matter of time before it went back up, and this time it comes when the weather is less conducive to other forms of transport (bikes, motorcycles, walking). Most Michiganders are forced to pay the price to get around for work and other obligations, at least until the weather warms up. By then, will we be forced to pay $5 a gallon?

G.M. Pauses Production of Chevrolet Volt

With the price of gas reaching the $4 a gallon threshold, you would expect sales of trucks and SUV's to be slow. General Motors has announced that it will halt production of the Chevy Volt for five weeks beginning later this month because dealers had more inventory than they need. Production of the Volt is scheduled to stop on March 16th and resume in late April, a G.M. spokesman, Chris Lee said.
