17. Good idea. If it's not Tesla directly, it'll be the impact of overall energy conservation

 

Almost everyone who thinks about buying a car now considers the possibility of outrageous gas prices in the near future which leads to more energy conscious purchases, which will lead to less demand for gas in the U.S..

Who knows what countries like China will do as the 200 million slave laborers there want to move up the socioeconomic ladder. That could lead to massive increases in crude prices worldwide which would negate all efforts in the U.S. to lower prices.

Great topic that affects us all. It'll be interesting to see if anyone has any other ideas.
