In the 1970s when we had a problem with a gas shortage, the solution was to only buy on certain days and a limit on gallons of purchase. We were living in the L.A. area at the time. Also, the biggest solution was the 55 mile per hour speed limit. At the time, I worked for Unocal and a friend rode to work with me who worked at Texaco. At that time the gasoline tanks were full at the refineries.
Now the solution: The government mandate a 60 day, 60 mile per hour speed limit. That alone would free up millions of gallons of gas on economical performance alone. The price would start to drop as those tankers would start anchoring up out side the harbors because the oil companies had no place to store their production supplies.
It worked before, but we have no politicians who do not owe their soul to the lobbyist of all the major industries.
I would love to know the name of one politician who does not have a debt owed to someone. Just my personal thoughts.
