Anytheing is possible, but its not like we will not make it theru. Look at our past history, we as a people are resilient to all theings theat happen to us. We have the tendency to bounce back from thee worst. It may take us a while we wee do not bow down to anyone, or anytheing once thee truthe is known.

minookaband says "there never was a true gas shortage in the 1970's .. . . .. all politics"
There was a gas shortage in the US, which was caused by the politics of the oil embargo.

Of course...and its not because there is a real shortage...there are plenty of reserves but politics, geography, economics, stupidity...can get in the way at any time.

"Methinks this is hiding the de facto shortage that is happening around us"

Really?

When was the last time that a gas station refused to sell you fuel because they were out?

I think we're already short of gas.

Think:
We used to demand that everyone learn how to drive. I remember summer school for learning how to drive, my parents and other older friends remember driving school IN THE SCHOOL YEAR!
At one time you could plan an expressway through ANYTHING and know that it would get built sooner or later – more likely sooner. Now, "The NIMBY Patrols" have been able to extend the planning stages to the point where many expressways had become unbuildable due to cost.
Once expressways were expected to be free and bridges that were tolled were made free - or replaced with free bridges. Now new expressways are planned to be tolled, and they're planning to replace free bridges with toll bridges.

Is this the sign of a society flush with energy and looking forward to it in the far future? No...

Gas use peaked in 2006, with Per Capita gas use peaking in 2007. You can say housing crash, but there's been little or no return of gas usage.

Methinks this is hiding the de facto shortage that is happening around us, as China and India prove willing to accept expensive fuel to fuel their growth.

Gas shortages are a created fiasco by the oil industry in general. I remember the ones in 1974 and when they got the prices elevated to where they wanted them, you didn't hear anymore about shortages. This industry is the most corrupt, evil, thieving thing around, and they literally control the world that we live it as well as all politicians.

If we run out of gasoline, diesel, and natural gas then what will we use to make ethanol with?

Can't make ethanol without natural gas for fertilizer and to power the distillery.

Can't make ethanol without diesel to power the farm's trucks and tractors. To haul corn to market. To haul corn to the distillery. To haul ethanol to fuel depots.

If ethanol was truly renewable then it wouldn't depend on non-renewable resources.
