"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

The documentary raises valid concerns. The presentation seemed inspired by a Michael Moore style, and certainly it does not live up to that: namely use of clips from other movies to convey a similar situation. Nevertheless, it brings about issues often missed in the debate over Peak Oil.
The most interesting part was the history of Standard Oil, specifically the fact that the actual dissolution of the company brought them more profits! Also, one gets real sense of problems when one sees reactions from ordinary people.
Watch if you ever had a concern for gasoline prices.
