Lowering fuel prices won't prevent this from happening again. The only way to get habits to change is to stop using so much fucking oil, and people are the consumers and are part of the problem.
So, Dear America,
Your cars are too big, too inefficient and now you make a lot of noise about an oil spill off your coastline at prices that are frankly unsustainable.
Are you really surprised that they cut corners, or that the regulations aren't stringent enough, your cities are designed around the car, public transport in most places is particularly shitty but still you don't change your behaviours as consumers.
When all the oil runs out the technology to replace it will be incomplete and long overdue.
Imma stop now before I get pissy about Dubya thumbing his nose at Kyoto and the commitment to lower carbon emissions, or imma be a big ball of eco hippy rage.
