Libya isn't the excuse. The excuse is that the same amount of demand is now being put a smaller number of suppliers (countries). Oil is a global commodity, you can really take the names of the countries right out of the equation.

Yep.

We'll be lucky if it stays below $10 the way things are going.

And with the commander n cowardliness blocking every attempt to pump, drill for our own oil. Remember "under my plan energy costs would necessarily skyrocket".

Just get a hybrid...or a full EV.

EV's aren't convenient for long road trips (yet)...but most of them have a range of 100 miles now (some get more), which is more than enough for most people to get to work and back, and take care of errands.

can you imagine the rolling black outs if everyone starts "plugging in " their cars...

there won't be much difference between being at the mercy of oil companies , or being at the mercy of electric companies.

the batteries are made out of lithium ... they discovered a huge lithium depost in afghanistan... coincidence ???

Because of full EV cars that average 23 KWh (hybrids are significantly less)?

That's the equivalent of 23 100 watt lightbulbs (or appliances in similar wattage) being on for 10 hours. It's really not that much.
