This is exactly why the world "NEEDS" higher fuel prices not lower. Low fuel prices only mean waste, waste and more waste. And in the end who benefits? Let "inflation," fill the gaps just like it did/does with everything from calculators to baseballs, (they never threw balls into the stands the way they do now, when I was growing up! :-).
