Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'd also suggest (though you cover this to some extent in the excerpt cited by Migeru in the diary) looking at activities that combine high oil sensitivity with low incomes (ie thin margins). Currently in France the fishing industry, small haulage contractors and lorry drivers, and farmers, are getting ready to rumble.

Of course, each country has its traditions of revolt, which is another of the parameters of the "social breakdown" question.
