This would become devastating for many other industries as well, as the loss of some standard living objects such as plastic become less and less abundant, its prices would go up and prices of many products with dirt cheap prices would match those of more expensive products. The automobile industry and transportation in general would also be a target for the effects of the loss of conventional, the higher demand of unconventional oil, and its bigger price tag.
