Peak Oil to help FOSS

In my studies this week I have read many (more than usual) articles on peak oil. One article I just read made me think about how the oil crisis might affect FOSS and the software market in general. Here's how I think oil is going to play out, soon after the midterm elections the price of oil will start back toward $65-$70 and it will be blamed on more people traveling for thanksgiving. In December (despite the lower demand of winter) the price will head toward $70-$75 and be blamed on holiday travel once again. This will set the stage for a good holiday season for FOSS since shoppers will want to save money on electronic devices and you can't get much cheaper than free.
