    Abstract

    One of the effects of peak oil — the imminent historic maximum of global oil production — is an increase in uncertainty surrounding future petroleum prices and availability. This poses enormous challenges to cities throughout the industrialized world, as they are utterly dependent on the relative mass affordability near-immediate availability of petroleum products, especially as liquid fuel for transportation. Some communities in the United States and Canada have begun responding to this threat at the local government level, seeking to build local economic and social resilience ahead of national action.
