Coming Attractions

It's only a movie.

To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time. When the world was powered by the black fuel. And the desert sprouted great cities of pipe and steel. Gone now, swept away. For reasons long forgotten, two mighty warrior tribes went to war and touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel they were nothing. They built a house of straw. The thundering machines sputtered and stopped. Their leaders talked and talked and talked. But nothing could stem the avalanche. Their world crumbled. The cities exploded. A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men.

FX cable will show "Oil Storm" in June. Looks pretty cheesy to me; I think the producers should subtitle it "Road Worrier" or "Miffed Max II".

Isn't this close to current European petroleum pricing?

Yes - but they are used to it, drive less, have smaller cars and have a functional public transport system...
