•   World oil production will peak ("Hubbert’s Peak") within 10-20 years.

          o  Production will peak slightly above current 80 million barrels per day

               and then steadily decline.

          o  Oil price will then rapidly and continuously escalate.

•   2004 U.S. oil consumption is 20 million barrels/day.
