While San Francisco has contingency plans for a host of natural disasters, accidents andeven terrorist attacks, The City has no plans on what to do if the oil supply suddenly runs out. That was the subject of a discussion in the Local Agency Formation Commission on Friday, where commissioners heard of similar projects in other cities. The next step is for the Board of Supervisors to create a task force to examine the effects of a sudden oil shortage and to come up with plans to meet it.
