Don't worry, it won't happen. If it does and gas goes up THAT much people will complain and start riots untill prices drop.

Very simple. I'll walk past my car and over to get my bike and go to and from work. I'd use the car to get groceries.

C'mon, we all know that will never happen. If that happend to this country, we'd be f*^*ed. The reason Europe can handle thier high gas prices is thier mass transit is lightyears ahead of ours. Combine that with everyone living in the city and no suburbs, people can easily bike or walk to work. We are helpless without cars.

i wouldnt be so sure of that. just think about when the hurricanes hit this summer. in indy, it went from $2.09/gal to $3.09/gal, and that was just because supply was cut, not the barrel prices increasing.

Actually, we had these discussions 30 years ago. We decided that cutting consumption from foreign countries was essential to our country'* self-interest. That'* 70s speak for national security.

Before the price got that high they'd be pulling oil from places you've never heard of. There are still thousands and thousands of capped wells sitting idle across the US because oil got too cheap to pump out of the ground here at home.

We might even get our minds right to tap some of the vast reserves off our coasts and in such garden spots as ANWR>
