Yet another reason to move towards solar power and other renewable energy sources.

Oil will still be used for lots of products but as we switch to being able to make more plastics from recycled garbage and plant materials this will remove the oil dependency.

Sadly this will cause a period of strain and destabilization in oil dependent areas but hopefully in the long run it'll help those places become more functional.
