Why We Have High Gas Prices

Not drilling in Alaskan wilderness areas isn't going to jack energy prices.

Not taking advantage of modern technologies will push things that way, however:

* gasoline MPG averages have stayed the same in the US since the early 70s. Check the 6 ton rigs that people are driving to see why.
* essentially the gasoline engine is a 100 year old technology that has progressede almost not at all in comparison with other technologies
* limited exploration of alternate energy sources
* suburbanization of America - I'm sure you've seen the vast wasteland of stripmalls and cookie cutter homes
* lack of decent public transportation in many urban and suburban areas
