So very true.
However, as has benn stated, individuals don't really have the capacity to store enough "petrol" for such trips.
I would, rather, think it should be easier to stock up on ammunition than gas. Bullets are a LOT easier to carry. And one .22 rimfire shell (that's weight and size is insignificant) could net you 20 extra gallons or so, later down the road when you're almost out and have room in your tank to put the fuel you score from some idiot that thought these movies were unrealistic.
I undertstand that when prices at the pump rise in a country that calls it "petrol" doesn't have as many ammo stores. So, get to the closest castle. You don't just need broad swords and poll axes, get the whole suits of armor, too. One bite from the living dead and you'll get an extreme urge for the taste of human brains.

I think we are only just starting to see what is about to happen...no where near the tip of the iceberg yet... I think this summer when folks start moving on vacations or the like then we'll really start getting clobbered and wish the prices were like today.
Its all rape and pillage though, no matter what commodity you talk about today, at least in my opinion. Gone are the days when we had utilities at cost to help serve the populace. Like our hydro here in Ontario for example. We have a huge surplus and sell most of it to the USA cheaper than what we pay. Now, they even put in smart meters on everyone to force people not to use as much so they can sell even more to the USA. Along with the smart meters, they also introduced time of day billing with three different charge rates...you guessed it...the time of day when people need hydro the most is the most expensive.
I remember back in 73 when gas was about 34 cents. I was having a chat with the station owner and he said that if gas ever got to over a buck a gallon there would be a third world war....never forget that day...wonder what he is thinking now.
