ABSTRACT
The article comments on oil prices and shortages, which is not just another 1970s nostalgia program. It might be funny if the characters got mixed up in that decade's "oil embargo" politics. We had the shortage, experienced the gas lines and made a weak attempt to cut the oil dependence. So we are in 2005 staring down a slippery slope from the top of what experts call Peak Oil, which refers to the point where all the relatively easy-to-get oil in the world has been gotten, represented by the top of a bell curve. While alternative energy sources may now be on the rescue fast track, many say we've wasted too much time already to ever expect any alternative or combination of alternatives to match the energy demands that oil currently fulfills.
