That might be the case for you or I, in the real world, yeah right.
Oil is in every facet of our (American) lives, you can't get away from it. Drive less but don't forget to buy milk on your way home (plastic). It's
going to take us as much time to get rid of the dependence on oil as it was to find it and utilize it in the first place.
I think, we are very lucky to be alive right now. We are riding the rollercoaster that must come to an end at some point. We have it good right now,
we might see the end of it but I doubt it in our lifetimes. The only thing that will stop this rollercoaster short is greed. There is oil all over the
place, the supply and demand doesn't have anything to do with scarcity in this case. The real reason is the people that hold the oil are waiting,
waiting for the poorer countries with oil to run out or get greedy themselves. When that happens, sell your oil. If you had a candy bar I was willing
to pay 50 cents for today and you also knew I'd pay 75 cents more for that same candy bar the next day, what would you do?
Just my opinion.
