Oil has been running out for the last 100 years.
Never seems to happen. Just like the preacher's prediction of the end of the world. (Amazing how Portland's progressives keep getting suckered by preachers.)

I hope I am still alive to witness the end of the gas combustion engine.
What a marvelous treat that would be!
