Alternatives need to be developed for many reasons, not least of which are to break the stranglehold the oil companies have on our political process.

I agree, partially (not for the stated reason, but in general.) But high priced gas would make the massive investments needed to come up with acceptible alternatives far more palatable, would it not? The question is whether or not the prices are high enough yet for this to be the case. It doesn't appear to be the case yet, people are complaining but there doesn't seem to be a massive call for something to be done about it quite yet.
