Challenge:

Name one product that you have purchased in memory that was not dependant on petroleum? None. Aside from things like plastics that are made with petroleum, how do things get onto the shelves? We're not talking trivial quantities either. The factory that made your cheese-flavor snack foods is probably several hundred miles away. And where did those chemicals that produce your cheese-flavor, and the grains that provide a "natural" base come from? The amount of energy consumed by one bag of chips is huge...

This is another reason I want to see a more distributed economy... small local companies buying local goods, and anything from outside of the immediate region falls in the category of luxury good.
