"This suggests to me that sprawl is less a function of some deep cultural imperative and more a function of the availability of relatively affordable gasoline."

Uh, no.

That's just your own bias talking, Ryan. Gasoline was merely the fuel for the automobile associated so keenly with the imperative (no pun intended) in North America.

But at least you're consistent. Your reluctance to consider things on a much deeper level fascinates me...but nothing you've ever said has had even the slightest effect of shifting my perception. (And I'm assuming the same applies to you, regarding my contributions. So at the very least, we're cancelling each other out. LOL)

(Besides; 'North Sea Oil'?!? The flow of which began mid-late 60s, some two decades after WWII ended? What has this to do with a 'post-war boom'?)
