That's highly doubtful without retarting up an existing gasline and have technicians to operate/maintain it.I doubt that oil drilling into fuels would occur based upon the complexity of restarting a refinery. The only possible gas that I can think possible post-collapse on a small scale is biogas (methane). This need warmth, so of lesser use in temperate zones for digestion of waste material by bacteria, but regular creation can occur in tropical zones. There's evaporative cooling like swamp coolers which are an old style that were used in air conditioning but require electricity which goes probably back to wood-gasification into generators to get that. It's why a Zeer pot will work for tiny but important refrigeration for preventing spoiliage of some items. The most likely kind of refrigeration, but only to an average 50 deg F (10 deg C) is a root cellar. There's lots of exotic kinds of refrigeration, but these require chemicals to draw from, and hence likely impossible long term. You're much more optimistic than I am about restarting civillization.

There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
