Consider the description of Randy's car. There is is something negative in this description that could bode future problems,

"Randy got into his new Bonneville. It was a sweet car, a compromise between a sports job and a hard top, long, low, very fast, and a lost of fun, even though its high-compression engine drank premium fuel in quantity."

Considering this novel is a dystopia we might consider that fuel will be hard to get.
