A couple of months there was a good program on NPR about this topic. The guests there said that, by the numbers, oil should run out in about 500 years or so...but in reality once we see that we are, indeed, running out of it - we will stop the massive consumption of it and in reality it will be more like 800 years.
I'm trying to find the program online right now so I have some proof for you guys.
