Good post sid2day! I agree. It is only a matter of time before we do run out of oil. Many including myself believe we have already reached 'peak oil'. Reaching peak oil does not mean the end of oil, it simply means that we are not as easily able to tap into new supplies and meet the every increasing demand as easily. This translates into higher prices which we are seeing today. Currently over $80. Unless we plan accordingly the transition away from oil reliance will be chaotic.
