Oil comes from Dino bones! And there were only so many Dino's alive, and that's why it will run out!!!
It's very nice of them to heard together and die in one place all over the world. They were considerate terrible lizards.
scientists still don't know for sure where oil comes from, how long it took to make, or how much there is.
The majority of petroleum is thought to come from the fossils of plants and tiny marine organisms. Larger animals might contribute to the mix as well.

We keep hearing information about peak oil. However, I believe it's a complete farse, it's a scam. It doesn't exist at all. Look it's simple we're at the top of peak oil yet I haven't heard one single story ever from any oil company saying that drilling or extraction is becoming difficult in this region or that one.
Say you wanted to increase the price of oil dramatically. Well you then need a shortage. That increases price. What better way to do that than to talk about the concept of peak oil as on reason prices are on the rise and will continue to remain on the rise as long as possible. I think that's what peak oil is really about. It's propaganda to get us thinking there will be a shortage then using it as a means to keep prices high and going on up.
