Oil

 
Date Event
2003-01-13 OPEC countries agree to compensate for the lack of Venezuelean oil ouput.  Total world production is 24.5Mbarrels/day. That is 24.5x159x106 liters or 3.9G liters/day, which is 0.65 liters per capita of the planet per day. It is also a cube with sides of 157m. Seemingly not that much... Would take only 256 days to fill a cubic kilometer.

A cubic kilometer in New York.  This is how much oil we use every nine months.
