By comparison the United States has paid less for fuel than the majority of other countries since the inception of burning petroleum.

It seems an act of avoidance and not facing reality to think this would remain to be the case through the depletion of this fuel source.

Many of our fellow "world citizens" find our whining & lack-of-preparation-for-such frustrating and laughable. Who can blame them, we can be pretty lacking in common sense and appear quite self-centered.
