I know i usually get the rap for being downer, but here's an interesting book you can read online.'re+Living+Longer,+Healthier,+More+Comfortable+Lives+on+a+Cleaner+Planet&printsec=frontcover&source=web&ots=ojlaO3UNRD&sig=XTSDQdLUM1kmyE-i7Cww3ptB0o4&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=3&ct=result#PPA31,M1

gasoline is more affordable than it was during the early 1960s, an era fondly remembered by many as halcyon days of cheap fuel and gas-guzzling American cars. We're overlooking that context because it's easier to remember 1998, when we saw the lowest inflation-adjusted gasoline prices in recorded history.

Politicians would do well to remember these historical facts, as well as consumer psychology, when discussing gas prices with voters. Failure to do both will likely result in a government eager to score political points with the electorate by doing exactly the wrong thing.

of course the devil is in the details.
