How will running out of IPV4 addresses affect the average internet user's Web surfing experience?

I asked my ISP if they were IPV6 ready and they said no. "Blahblahblah is not yet using IPv6 nor are there any immediate plans in place to change to IPv6 at this time."
The subject has been brought up a few times on the blue already:
IANA be a hero
, The Future Without IPv6
, Uh-oh! We're almost out of IP addresses!
But I'm specifically wondering what the shortage will do to folks. Will it be like the gas shortage in '73? Will we all queue up at godaddy? Should we be hording domains? Should I find a different ISP?
Are we all going to die?
