Fuel Crisis

We've all watched in horror as the price of oil, and the resultant price of fuel, rises and rises and rises...

It's becoming hard to afford to commute, or travel to visit friends/family - and I realized that road-trips and other journeys may soon be prohibitively expensive!

With all of us being urged to save cash and fuel, how can I justify taking a huge pile of both simply to travel and see things? Granted, it's also supposed to be "educational", and the fulfilling of a life-long dream - yet it still worries me.

Will our plans simply fade away as the oil supplies on this planet quickly dwindle?

I hope not.... but I suspect it's true.
