When and what is it going to take to rid ourselves of such dependency on it? Are we all going to be in our cars, traveling and all run out simultaneously and look bewildered because we are unable to travel before we realize we need to do something?
People are sitting in lines for blocks (some running out of gas waiting too), fighting - yes physically with fists and shitz. The stores are roping off their pumps because there is none and it will be a couple of days before some have it. The recent hurricane in the gulf fucked up our oil supply.
I have a several cycling friends and one recommended a good one to me, but 50+ miles each way to and from work kinda discourages me from taking that option.
I think, in our case right now, they should maybe put a 10 gallon limit on all vehicles to avoid at least the long lines and so many running out all at once and fighting with each other.
