      Future of oil is bleak. By 2030, 95% of people may not own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry

      A futurist and clean energy expert, Toni Seba, has predicted that electric vehicles would destroy the global oil industry after a decade. By 2030, 95% of people won't own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry, he says.
