Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think you need to separate the current relationship between oil use and GDP. While historically, for perhaps the last 100 years or so, these have been tightly connected, they don't need to be. For example, if office work was to be completely relocated to home offices, the commuting fuel demand would drop significantly with little or no change to the economy.
