Peak oil piquing public's interest

WHAT'S THE FEAR?
That global oil production will soon begin to decline and never return to levels that have supported American lifestyles.

WHY?
Global consumption of oil has steadily increased and is expected to continue to grow. Some experts say discoveries of oil have slowed and that there is little left to be found.

IMPACT?
Some believe Americans will have to give up large houses, gas-guzzling vehicles and congregate in smaller rural communities, where they will use low-energy sources and won't require long-distance transport of food.
