Maps - Tough Oil

We live in a petroleum-saturated world. Literally. Despite fears of reserve shortages and declining crude, world oil production has experienced a steady rise in recent years, to the tune of an estimated 72.26 million barrels a day for 2009, up from 65.92 million barrels a day in 1999.
