The End of the Oil Age

Portfolio.com has an interactive feature that shows the cost of fuel around the world. The price map puts in perspective that the costs that US consumers face aren't high by global standards.

But Americans are certainly concerned about rising energy prices and I'm glad that the price of gas has focused more attention on the end of the oil age.

Grist has a nice chart showing the differences between the presidential candidates on the environment and energy issues.

The most notable difference is in the last column on nuclear power where McCain alone proposes a radical expansion of nuclear power in this country.
