You need a lot of layers of NAT before it'll be as expensive as IPv6. And to provide NAT64 with IPv6 for the end-user just makes no sense: why will they do that? It'll provide worse experience for larger price.
Actually the US is probably the last country where "white IP" is not considered luxury. In the most parts of the word you must pay extra for it - and I fail to see why exhaustion of addresses will change anything short-term. It'll gradually make these addresses more expensive, that's true, but short-term there will be no change.
