3.7 The Middle East: The World's Last Oil Reserve?

The World's Last Oil Reserve?
With this picture we wish to illustrate:
  • The distribution of the world's oil supplies across the earth.
  • The amount of oil already consumed, and the amount which likely remains.
  • That the world's last large oil reserve lies in the Middle East.
Further, we could postulate that the rapidly increasing population in Asia will want to secure access to more oil than is available in that area of the world.
