From Oil Rig to Gas PumpBook - 2017
This timely book looks at the world's production of oil and our dependence on this natural resource. The majority of today's forms of transportation and hundreds of thousands of the items we use every day rely on oil or oil-based products. Readers will learn how oil is found, mined, and processed into many different products. Real-world examples of environmental and human disasters related to oil are discussed, as well as the possible alternatives to using oil now that this important, non-renewable natural resource is running out.
