INFOGRAPHIC: Visualizing the flow of oil around the world
Every day, 93 million barrels of oil are consumed by the world economy.
While a handful of countries are fortunate enough to have sufficient domestic production, many others must go to the $3 trillion global crude market for their energy needs.
Today's map shows the flow of oil imports and exports around the world.
It is also worth noting that Venezuela, another significant exporter, is experiencing hyperinflation right now. However, the country’s tight capital controls mean that inflation information has to be extrapolated from black markets outside the country. DolarToday is a good source for this.
