Storyline

"GasHole" is a new documentary film about the history of Oil prices and the future of alternative fuels. The film takes a wide, yet detailed examination of our dependence on foreign supplies of Oil. What are the causes that led from America turning from a leading exporter of oil to the world's largest importer? What are the economic and sociological forces that have contributed to that change and impede its solution? The film examines many different potential solutions to our oil dependence. Starting with claims of buried technology that dramatically improves gas mileage, to navigating bureaucratic governmental roadblocks, to evaluating different alternative fuels that are technologically available now, to questioning the American Consumer's reluctance to embrace alternatives. If you buy gasoline, you should see this movie! Written by Anonymous

Interesting, but poorly done
11 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary brings up some interesting issues, and makes some good points, but seems to be poorly done. I agree with a lot of the ideas in the movie, but I wish they had more facts and show where they got their information. Also they don't mention other alternate forms of energy. The filmmakers focus too much on conspiracy theories and bio-diesel (which is still pretty dirty). I feel like they did not do enough research when they made this movie. The idea that we use too much gasoline is true. I also agree that there are great alternatives to old gasoline cars, but this movie just doesn't make a great case for those issues. I think they could have spent some more time supporting their issues and making the movie a higher quality.

I had high hopes and I just feel disappointed. I liked "Who Killed the electric car better"
