One barrel of crude oil contains 42 gallons
About 46% of each barrel of crude oil is refined into automobile gasoline
In the US and Canada an average of 3 gallons of crude oil are consumed per person each day
The US imports about 50% of its required crude oil and about 50% of that amount comes from OPEC countries

Gasoline 19.3
Distillate Fuel Oil (Inc. Home Heating and Diesel Fuel) 9.83
Kerosene Type Jet Fuel 4.24
Residual Fuel Oil 2.10
Petroleum Coke 2.10
Liquified Refinery Gases 1.89
Still Gas 1.81
Asphalt and Road Oil 1.13
Petrochemical Feed Supplies 0.97
Lubricants 0.46
Kerosene 0.21
