Oil Prices... High Enough?

So, how about those oil prices? Isn't that what everybody is talking about? I think they aren't high enough. Want to know why? I haven't seen any significant push for our representatives in Washington to make any meaningful effort in alternative energy development. Perhaps $8 or $9 per gallon, as our European friends are currently paying, would finally push us to act. How about $15? $20? Do I hear $30? Surely, with our technological prowess, we are able to develop a suitable battery for electric cars. We do hear about technological breakthoughs here and there, but not at the scale I would expect from a frustrated America. Last time we were truly frustrated, we put a man on the moon. Have we lost the will? What do you think?
