If only the US hadn't pulled out of Kyoto...we would have higher gas prices and more efficient cars to show for it!

Lol. I drive one of the more fuel efficient cars on this site and even I worry about what will happen if $2 a litre came to be this year.

- People would steal gas like lunatics. Rip off the licence plates, wear hooded a sweatshirt & sunglasses then blatently take it from gas stations in huge hoards.
- Activists would crash/destroy/torch higher-priced name brand gas stations in anger.
- Innocent people would be killed/injured over this materialistic fuel.
- SUVs and trucks would be vandilized and gas syphoned from them.

Someone somehwere should make a blockbuster movie about such a situation. Gas prices $15 a gallon = lunacy everywhere!

The good thing about that situation is that after the huge revolution, everyone would be driving electric scooters, walking, riding their bikes everywhere and it would be a happy ending.

We pay $2 a litre here now (in the UK), and there is no civil unrest.

When the price went about ?1 / litre though, there were blockades by lorry drivers which caused chaos everywhere and the prices dropped (then began creeping up again from that point). I wonder if we can do that next time they get so high?

The other day I saw a Pontiac Trans-Am drive by, and wondered how they can afford to run that in the UK??

I remember when the price of a pint of ale in London went to £1 for the first time (around the summer of 1984), everyone was freaking out. Ahh the good old days. Back then it was still 60 p in the country.

Even at $2 a litre in Germany, people (including me) drive over 200 km/h....so no there won't be civil unrest, unless Canadians are more hot-headed than other nationalities
