One of the things the current oil market should cause us to do as a society is consider economic interdependencies the way we consider software interdependencies: among other things, as a potential attack surface. If your job market structurally relies on oil costing more than, say, $20/barrel; then any country or consortium that can unilaterally drive the price of down to $19/barrel is quietly but effectively holding your economy - and hence, your political apparatus - hostage.
