Maybe not.
I have quite a number of friends that work in the oil and gas industry, 
and not as rig hands either.  Peak oil is a nice concept that sells 
papers, and generates market response at the commodity exchange level 
which is usually the desired effect all along, but in reality, it won't 
be here for quite some time.  QUITE some time.  There is asphaltum 
galore in the tar sands, more oil than all the developed fields have 
produced to date around the world. Yeah, that much.

Unfortunately, suburbia will be here for quite some time.
Perhaps the fear can be used to change usage patterns which would be a 
triumph unto itself.
