World Flow of Oil


Here is a fantastic graphic from British Petroleum. (Source: BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2009). Very interesting to see the inbound flow of oil into the United States.  I was particularly interested to see the flows of oil from the Middle East into Asia areas and also the rest of the world.

Given the continued discussion about America’s energy dependence this graphic clearly shows their is a gap between public perception versus the reality.
