Americans should first start by asking the question, "Why are the prices increased ?" Notwithstanding the circumvented blather from the main stream media, the answer is simple greed. Exxon reported record high profits and became the number two Fortune 500 Company, immediately after the prices increased, so it's not about shortages, it's about greed and I think more people need to contact there representatives and start asking the question, "Why?"
In the long run, this will have a sever impact on our economy, especially when people's disposable income does not allow them to go on vacation, dine out, buy new clothes, etc. The oil companies will continue to do well while the rest of the consumer based industry will suffer. But then again, who does our current president really have his ties to anyway?
