You probably weren't born yet when the Arab oil embargo of 1973 occurred, but it was ugly. Overnight, gasoline prices went from $0.35 to $0.70 per US gallon, and we had to stand in line for hours to days to buy a tank of fuel. Gas stations couldn't get fuel to sell to us at any price, and I spent several nights sleeping in my car at school because there were no gas stations open in the entire county for me to buy enough fuel to get home. The excuse they used for raising the price was that we have to conserve because in 20 years, there will be no oil left in the world. Well, 1993 came and went, and we're still finding new sources of petroleum. What's the excuse for these prices now? And who's going to believe the lie du'jure? Today I filled the tank at $3.61 per gallon, and I'm glad that I found that bargain. But I question why I should consider that a bargain. Labor costs have doubled since then, and materials have also become more expensive; that I can deal with. But they haven't gone up enough to justify the prices we're paying today.

Still, we survived the attack, and so will India. It will take some time, and some adjustments in the quality of life, but you'll adapt to the new reality. Hang on; you'll make it, as we did and continue to do...
