I wouldn't normally post a link with little comment, but this is a good
one.

Key quote:

Our mobile economy remains defenseless against oil-price shocks and supply
> interruptions. In the US, transport accounts for 70 per cent of petroleum
> consumed. 97 per cent of transport fuel in the US is derived from oil, and
> there are no plausible substitutes. When prices go up, there are only two
> choices: drive less or pay more. If supplies are disrupted for any reason,
> the choices are even worse. This must change.
