WHAT HAPPENS TO CITIES WHEN THE GAS RUNS OUT?
Many suburban-urban areas will be crippled by gas rationing; commuters may be unable to get to work until emergency procedures are in place. Some far-sighted communities, however, have already created energy contingency plans. One of these areas, Dallas/Fort Worth, developed a plan in 1977 after an extensive study of commuting habits, average commutes, mass transit capabilities and alternative commuting methods. As a result, energy coordinators for 20 communities are appointed, mass transit is geared up to absorb increased ridership (which could double almost overnight) and some laws have been modified to facilitate emergency measures.
