I remember when regular gasoline was 28.9 cents per gallon. People freaked out at 50.9 cents per gallon. There was an actual shortage.

The lines of cars to the gas pumps were long. Many fueling stations ran out of gas with a long line of cars still waiting for their turn to fuel up.

Gasoline eventually went over $1 per gallon. The panic wasn't there because there was no shortage. Even at $4.50 per gallon there still is no shortage. What's it going to be like when there is a real shortage?

Drill. Drill. Drill. This is the answer.

Also, develop alternative energy sources. Stop turning our food into alcohol for fuel. T. Boone Pickens seems to have a decent plan. Use it as part of the solution.
