The state and federal governments would collapse due to the enormous loss of tax base. Vast majority of your government's dollars for infrastructure comes from fuel taxes. We're talking billions of dollars gone!Can you imagine what would happen if all of a sudden the need for oil just basically disappeared, Catastrophy comes to mind.
My opionion is if there is such technology available(I would'nt be suprised if it was available), the oil companies and governments will try and suppress it for awhile for different reasons, and some legitimate. Any fantastic technologys would best be introduced slowly from my view.

Yeah...the government could tax the crap out of us for using water instead of oil .
