53. This is going to be a problem as highways deteriorate
Falling oil consumption due to unaffordable crude oil imports and greenhouse gas restrictions will mean that the oil refineries produce less hazardous toxic waste (aka asphalt) for use in paving highways.

As gas substitutes for oil, the price of cement will be going up as well.

Even today, you occasionally find a lineup of cars with flats after a repair plate has come loose or a chunk of concrete has dropped out of a bridge. These are particularly common on the new low-profile tires, and they are not fixable with a can of fix a flat.
