Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

Spoiler!

Americans are not "resigned" to it. Americans are pissed at it.

So, what are you doing to combat the prices, if that's what you are pissed about?

This just in from the newsroom... Bicycles are still fairly inexpensive.

Not driving anywhere unnecessary during the week.

And by asking this, are you OK with gas potentially being 4 bucks a gallon, and think that Americans AREN'T pissed at the notion?

Good for you. Disable your daytime running lights while your at it. Plus all the other things you can do (properly inflated tires, no A/C, no full throttle, etc.)

Am I okay with the potential of $4/gallon? Well, personally, I don't think it will go that high. But, if it does, it does.

Very true...

I think when gas prices go high it really hurts alot of other industries as well..

Americans have just learned to give up simple luxuries...


Could be cofffee, donuts, a book, movies..whatever....

If gasoline reaches $4.00, the government would almost certainly hit the SPR and eliminate the federal tax. States probably would as well.

True. But the problem is that's the top of the hill where the snowball starts rolling. Cut out movies or eating out, those industries feel it, so they charge their vendors more, in return the vendors charge more for their services...on and on.

It is somewhat scary to think about gas potentially getting that expensive.
