Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, but the problems is that demand will be growing in the meantime. China and India are at a point where car ownership is increasing a LOT faster than economic growth, so their demand for oil will increase even in an economic slowdown.

As we've seen in the past year, oil demand is very unelastic: prices have tripled, and yet demand has been growing at a record pace.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
