oilstandard.jpg
a web browser plug-in that converts all prices from U.S. dollars into the equivalent value in barrels of crude oil. when a user loads a webpage, the script inserts converted prices into the page. as the cost of oil fluctuates on the commodities exchange, prices rise & fall in real-time. 'OilStandard' illustrates a potential future when oil will replace gold as the standard by which we trade all other goods & currencies.

It's just that we will run out of oil, the gold will pretty much be available all the time.
