There is no production crisis. There is however, a consumption crisis. If you are alarmed by the price of gasoline, don't buy it. Ride a bike, take a bus, live near work. Don't turn on the air conditioning, open a window. Run appliances after dark. When consumption drops significantly, prices will follow.
