As far as the amount of oil left, don't worry too much about it. The technology is always getting better, and previously unrecoverable hydrocarbons are always becoming available. Sure, you can't just drill into any spot and expect to produce oil anymore, but stuff like horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing is becoming cheaper and more effective. The physical amount of oil and gas in the ground is finite, but Earth is a huge place, and we've barely scratched the surface.
