    Imagine an everyday world in which the price of gasoline (and oil) continues to go up, and up, and up. Think about the immediate impact that would have on our lives. Of course, everybody already knows how about gasoline has affected our driving habits. People can't wait to junk their gas-guzzling SUVs for a new Prius. But there are more, not-so-obvious changes on the horizon that Chris Steiner tracks brilliantly in this provocative work.

    Overall

    My first review & I regret that it is a negative one. $20 a Gallon starts off like a a college research paper - a plethora of quotes with duly noted sources. It then morphs into a heavy social commentry lightly sprinkled with nuggets of something you can hang your hat on. The author makes grand ecological assumptions (we'll enjoy our national parks more without too-expensive-to-use atv's buzzing around)but employs very little critical analysis (how will we afford to visit the aforesaid parks to enjoy them if even atvs are too expensive to run?) I titled this review relentless because I really do want to finish the book (I still haven't) for the few nuggets of good information but it just seems to go on and on and on........ I would like just the footnotes, please.
