Abstract:

The Babylonians and Sumerians were using thick, gooey oil as early as 5000 BC as pitch to caulk their boats and hold their building bricks in place. Oil is actually a fuel, like coal, but its use today is more widespread through its products such as gasoline and kerosene. Oil and Gas takes a fascinating look at this disappearing fossil fuel describing how it is made, where it is located in the world, and the environmental and economic problems its use has created. Discusses the history of oil, its production around the world, and alternative fuels that can be used in place of oil.
