Storyline

Josh visits a car dealership and is seduced by both a hybrid and a monster SUV, despite knowing that Congress is unlikely to raise fuel efficiency standards. For political cover as well as genuine concern, he meets with representatives of the alternative energy industries. Charlie has graduated from college and is reluctant to keep his promise to the President of finding a "real" job. Following press complaints about Toby he agrees to take deportment lessons from Annabeth. C.J. visits Leo at his hotel and finds out why he's so insistent that the President play chess each week.

Trivia

The title refers to the Hubbert Peak theory, which states that oil production in any given area or field will follow a bell shaped curve: starting slowly and increasing as more reserves are discovered and tapped, eventually reaching a peak and then declining, as the last of the finite amount of oil present will be increasingly difficult to extract.
