You mean our massive dependency on "foreign" finite petroleum resources. Wacky and unreasonable socialist/communist/progressive environmental extremist policies have caused domestic oil prices to soar. The US has an almost infinite supply of petroleum if we would be allowed to find new sources and exploit those sources we currently have found. There's plenty of petroleum to last until technology can truly catch up to gradually illuminate our need for oil. I've been hearing from the left for all my 50+ years on earth about how we're gonna run out of oil in the next 10 minutes, 2 years, 10 years, 20 years, 40 years, bla bla bla. It never happens and they keep finding more oil. I'll be dead before they run out. Oil today is expensive...but it's no more expensive when compared with wages and the economy than it was fifty years ago. It's still a far better deal than some of these bullshit "green" halfassed ideas that keep getting shoved down our throats by the tree huggers. Maybe some day they'll be as cheap and convient as good old fashioned oil, but right now they suck. What I've learned during my life is that good ideas are like assholes...everybody has one and they usually all stink.

Its not so much an issue of running out an oil as it is the price of extraction increasing as we have to turn to smaller and more unconventional reserves (sands, shale, etc), to the point where it will have a serious effect on the economy if we don't find alternative sources. Demand will continue to increase as extraction begins to take longer and cost more. We know where these sources are, the problem is that they're nowhere near as efficient as the large deposits we've grown accustomed to in countries like Saudi Arabia. It won't happen overnight but eventually it will start to have a major economic impact. It has nothing to do with leftist environmentalism, it has to do with the basic realities behind oil production and the fact the the US' reserves are not easy enough to tap that they could sustain our economy at the same prices that imported oil does.
