Just so nobody is naive enough to think the genie can be put back in the bottle (especially where economics is involved), it doesn't mean you have to like it.

Now you may think "hey it is just an oil company", but really, it would be naive to think that any job or function could not be "automated", probably in some half-a$$ed manner (because economics).

It isn't like the oil company can't afford drivers.
