Oil will never be "all gone", at least not in the forseeable future, but the cost of drilling for it will make it so expensive that alternative energy sources would actually be cheaper. Besides, I don't think we should be drilling for oil in our own country, it's where we live. Oil fields are not a pretty site, they smell terrible, and they would do long term, possibly permanent environmental damage. Right now, a large part of my once beautiful state is being destroyed by residential and commercial development, and it's absolutely disgusting. Peace. Jerry.
