How much would you pay for gasoline before you said to yourself, ?Whoa. I?ve got to cut back on my gasoline consumption.?? Would it be $3.25, $3.50, $4.00?? The guest of Chuck Harder, Dr. Jay Lehr, thinks that the magic number may be $4.00/gal.? Chuck is the host of ?For the People? and he says that he feels sucker-punched with the fuel situation.? He thinks, perhaps, that it will take at least 5 to 10 years before we get ourselves out of the fuel situation we are in.? His guest, Dr. Lehr, says he thinks it may take as long as 20 years or more.? He figures that during the rest of his lifetime we will still be energy dependent on other countries since it will take at least twenty years to get more nuclear plants up and running.? Is nuclear the only recourse?? No.? And what is the beginning step when people have finally reached the tipping point, the ?Gas is how much??, the ?I?m ready to change my habits so I don?t have to spend so much on fuel??? The beginning step is what it has always been: conservation of energy.? Lehr, who is the Science Director of Heartland Institute (Heartland.org) says that in the last year our consumption of oil products has risen 6/10 of 1%.? That may not seem like much but it is huge.? Guess we haven?t reached the tipping point yet, huh?? Click here to listen to this podcast.We would like to thank the sponsor of today?s show:
