    What new energy sources and technologies will we see introduced to the general public given the price of fuel at its current level? At 150% current level? 200%? 300%? 500%?

    For instance, how much inflation of oil prices must we endure to incorporate ubiquitous tar sands and oil shale as a practical sources of fuel?

    Rumor has it that Shell wants to see consistent long-term barrel prices for raw crude over $30 before they will go ahead with shale exploitation.
