This week the Saudis beheaded 37 ‘criminals’, one of which was crucified before AFTER his execution. Barbarians. ROMANS.
FTFY.

Re: Price of petrol/gasoline

US are also threatening Venezuela which likely will also hit oil prices.

Trump is pinning his hopes on Saudi upping oil production to fill the gap and so cutting prices. But there are rumours that Saudi are already closer to the maximum they can possibly produce than they care to admit!

Tick, tock, Tick, tock... Time is running out for oil, soon it will stop being an energy source and turn into an energy sink. Maybe this whole Mid East, Russia, Venezuela mess is the overture to the major powers jostling for control over the last dregs.

It is also amazing how some countries completely seem to fail to secure their economical future for once the oil (or gas) runs out (or can't be produced anymore)

Where Norway made a huge savings account, did the Netherlands just burn through the money from their gas. Venezuela is hardly capable of even producing oil despite their incredible reserves and Dubai is for example investing hugely to set up other long term economical solutions like becoming a major air traffic hub.

Shit will hit the fan in the future, if not for oil, it be for gas, food, water or other recources.

Price of gas

The price of gas (gasoline, petrol, etc) is approaching $4 a gallon in the San Francisco Bay Area. People are getting upset... What are you currently paying in Switzerland?

These kinds of plans seems rather daft. How will tourists get to you once the oil, and thereby flights, become significantly more expensive?

I don't know about Swiss gas prices, but yeah, $4 per gallon sure means the end of the world is near. I can't even use my Hummer for emptying my mail box any more.

Maybe, but wars for food, water etc. will be localized, oil on the other hand is the big one. Without oil there is no modern human civilzation, perhaps not even on a bronze age level as there are no longer any easy reachable metals left and as soon as the worked metals have oxyidzed we will be back in the stone age. Planning ahead is not how most governments roll and with the rise of the right wing populist this situation is only likely to get worse.

Electrical?

I assume batteries in the next 40 yrs will make a giant leap allowing us to do so.

Not too sure but I think that the question of batteries has been answered and they are simply not going to be much better than they are now, you can only pack so much energy in a chemical process.

Quite likely but where is all the electricity generation going to come from ?


The UK can't even manage to start building 1 Hinkley point nuclear power station; they will need 10 more to power all the electrical cars they want by 2040

Simple, oil and coal based powerplants and a long extention cable from France.

Power shortage and environmental issues will get rid of a lot of resistance against nuclear plants.

Valid argument if you believe that in 40 years we still use the same batteries as now.

Well, we can only go by what we as now know as possible, everything else is speculation. But unless we manage to bend the laws of physics batteries won´t get much better.

It makes no sense to be extra-precise on a price that can change daily, usually varies from seller to seller, and differs by 15% or even more all over the country.
