Is the global economy completely dependent on oil?

    In a manner of speaking, yes.  Oil, or petroleum, is our primary energy source.  That said, the global economy is only dependent on petroleum based fuel sources because a cheaper alternative has not yet been found.  However, cars and basic industry could not function (ie the economy would collapse) if all oil were to disappear off of the planet tomorrow morning.
