at 4 a gallon last summer, we all seen stories of people buying a pos 93 geo metro for 8000, V6 and 8's suv's dropping in price rapildy, and 10 year old Japanese hybrids being sold for their brand new price 10 years ago.
i think that the price going to $5 overnight(fairly quickly) could cause some economic woes, but if it gradually rises to that price...

there are sooooooo many ways Americans can cut back in spending(waste), i believe that a slow and deliberate increase would be accepted as inflationary and part of a routine.
