"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
Starting with the 100mpg myth? This movie is a farce
If we start with a complete lie about 100 mpg, this movie started as an epic failure. The fact is that the US economy is completely dependent on oil and there's nothing, absolutely no way out. As expensive as it is, it's the cheapest energy source and will be for 50 years (until it is gone).
The United States government can continue to support dictatorships which keep the price of oil a little bit lower, but the motivation for such action is pure greed. The United States pulled out of the Libyan war very quickly and not for any noble reason. The republicans pulled a paper tiger out of their butt saying that Obama started an illegal war. When they first arrest Dubya, then I'll start listening. Otherwise, talk to the hand. Republicans whine about some illegal war because it's 'bad for business' (drives up the price of oil).
