As the Deepwater Horizon continues to leak oil at a rapid rate, many people are asking whether we should be drilling in the Gulf of Mexico at all, while others say offshore drilling in the Gulf is a necessary source of oil. To help settle this debate, this is a look at oil around the world, who is producing the most, and what we use it for in this country.

 

UPDATE TWO: We've updated the graphic. You can see the original here.

UPDATE: Thanks to the commenters for pointing it out, the graphic should indicate that the United States produces 1.5 million barrels a day from offshore drilling. We regret the error and the delay in correcting. We'll update the graphic shortly.
