Below is a short, well made video representing the importance that petroleum plays in our everyday lives. In light of the continued demonization of the industry I thought it was timely to illustrate petroleum’s vast uses in many products other than gasoline. Please keep in mind that liquid petroleum hydrocarbons (i.e. crude oil) and its byproducts are mostly used for refined transportation fuel (71% according to the EIA-DOE), but 23% is used for industrial purposes (i.e. all the things the guy loses in the video).
