It used to be that only environmentalists and paranoids warned about the world running out of oil and the future it could bring: crashing economies, resource wars, social breakdown, agony at the pump. Not anymore -- and certainly not this summer, with the average national price of a gallon of gasoline somewhere around $2.60 in late August, up 73 cents from last year, and with Hurricane Katrina's aftereffects bound to push prices still higher...
*******Here in Virginia Beach, gas prices are already back down to under $2.60 a gallon. So much for a hurricane causing a long-term gas price rise.
I just came back from Norway where they have their own North Sea oil, yet they pay the equivalent of $6.00 a gallon and their economy is humming.
Why is everybody always ready to cry The sky is falling? Lack of faith in ourselves? In
our fellow men? In God?
