Only way to fix the problem is to reduce demand, as someone said, ban

Read in the Reno paper that average consumption per person is way 
down...below 1970 level!

How much more can we do?  ggg

Hey Matt,
    We're still importing over HALF of our oil from outside the USA.  You can 
imagine what this does to our balance of payments.  Even if much of this oil 
does not come from the Middle East, our importation keeps the global price 
high since oil is a global commodity.  So the rising retail price of gasoline 
(much as we don't like it) has one good effect.  And that is to reduce demand so 
we'll eventually import less oil.
