Oil FieldsFirst Friday: The True Cost of Oil

Friday, January 6, 2012 - 7:00pm

Gas is expensive, but its environmental, economic, political, and moral price is much higher. Author and award-winning journalist Lisa Margonelli gives a provocative tour of the true cost of gasoline from your local gas station, to oil spills in the Gulf, to militias in the Niger Delta, to Middle East dictators and shows us how to break out of our energy trap.
