War trumps rationing
Editor - Oil consumption in the United States has not gone down in the slightest. Let the companies raise the prices; people still buy more. Raising prices is not going to slow people down from taking their Sunday afternoon drive or their vacation or their weekend trip, not a bit. The only thing that'll stop them is rationing. However, American drivers, rather than have their gasoline rationed and their vacations shortened, would much prefer to go to war to steal it.
