For gasoline if this continues. The state/fed government is already loosening regulations on transport of fuel.

I think you are giving too much credit to the japanese response to the tsunamis. Their government screws them over, and they say, almost to a man, thank you sir, may I have another.

Plus, dumpster diving to me is more of a failure of government than a failure of the people. Sure, Americans didn't plan, they erroneously trusted government to take care of them, but at least they are out trying to take care of themselves now.
