Drive until empty. park it, and buy an electric car.
Siphon my neighbor's gas
Sit outside with a shotgun so my neighbor doesn't siphon my gas
Convert my vehicle to alternative fuel (LPG, methanol...)
Find some sucker, and sell him my obsolete vehicle
Nothing. Wait for a replacement fuel to hit the market.

I would cry. Heavily..then I would take off on my girlfriends pink bicycle and ride 80 miles a day to work and back. Hoard all the gas I possibly could and drive while nobody else had gas..when I ran out I would find a diesel engine and convert to veggie oil so I can smell like french fries :D. The shotgun idea wouldn't work to well for me seeing as I don't have any neighbors for 6 miles

Who is it, Venezuela I think that has converted all their stations gas supply to a sugar cane bio fuel. Don't understand why we haven't done something like that yet. I would convert to lp though. I thought about doing that anyway.This post has been rated MA LSV, and is intended for mature audiences. Reader discretion is advised. :fighting0037:

Out of gas and oil
I know oil is not a renewalable resource and is in limited supply, but does anyone really know how much we have. I'm not so sure we can trust those figues throw at us by the science and government sectors. We must have some decent reserves by Florida and both coast lines. China is investing tons of money in Cuba to slant drill into our continental shelf to get at it.
I don't see any great strides or desire to advance past the petroleum base vehicles we use today. Battery power is way to limited in power and drive time. I also think these battery factories will become very dangerous to the enviroment. They are dealing with some very toxic chemicals.
Maybe we need to nationalize the oil companies and protect our own rather than sell to the highest bidder or commodies trader.2001 Tahoe LT W/98K

I don't have to do anything. I have two Chevy vehicles that already run on compressed natural gas (CNG). These vehicles came straight from Chevrolet this way and run flawless on both gasoline and CNG. In fact, in Utah, CNG is only $1.27/gal. That is a third the price of gasoline right now. Back in 2008 when gasoline was $4/gal., CNG in Utah was $0.63/gal. No that is not a typo. Savings back then were awesome. Now I am saving about $10 - $12 everytime I fill my Cavalier up with CNG (every other day). I filled my Chevy truck up with CNG the other day - 18 gallons cost me $23.
