On Peak Oil

“In recent years the once-considerable gap between demand and supply has narrowed. Last year that gap all but disappeared. The consequences of a shortfall would be immense. If consumption begins to exceed production by even the smallest amount, the price of oil could soar above $100 a barrel. A global recession would follow.”
– The Independant


This comes after BP revealed that oil reserves are less than previously thought. The oil market, once dominated solely by crunching supply and surging demand will act accordingly, sending oil prices to multiplying highs, similar to that of the 1970s, until new sources of energy are available for industrial use.
