...If I recall correctly, the vast majority of oil is used [for other] purposes than being consumed as fuel...Tom
I think this is what you intended to say (minor adjustments within brackets are mine).
Assuming so, I think this might be correct, or somewhat correct. I can't cite the source, but I think I heard or read, recently, that fuel (gasoline, diesel) is becoming something of a byproduct of oil use for other uses. That statement caught my attention at the time.
In the US, and if here, probably in lots of other parts of the world, vehicles are much more efficient than they were. We own one car that gets ~30 MPG on trips. Probably 2.5 times better than cars my family would have owned 50 years ago. Plus I ride a motorcycle whenever I can. Mostly for the enjoyment, but it results in major fuel savings (major within my family
). We do own a gas-hog truck that's nice, but rarely used. It's mostly used when we need a truck. Of course most other folks have much more fuel-efficient cars today compared to years past.
Gas is ~$2.00/gallon here...
