There was a short lived gas rationing in the late 70s but that was from a trumped up oil imbargo. The difference between then and now is back then the bottom wasn't dropping out of the economy like it is now. We still had manufacturering and jobs in those days. It's different now and getting worse fast.

If it gets bad enough and stays that way long enough, when people see us laughing ans singing our way to the store getting 120 mpg things could change.
