All the ways of replacing oil are more cumbersome, and less efficient, as well as the fact that oil itself is required in the production of any of them.....signifigant amounts of it.

Lubricants? We have other lubricants, no need to worry.
As far as taxes, the government will find something else to tax us on.

Let the oil execs be humbled and work at McDonalds for once. If they were smart and really cared, they would invest in cleaner technologies, and profit from that.
