Oil and Natural Gas Fuels the Holidays!

The holidays are an exciting time here in Texas. From visiting family to finding perfect gifts, oil and natural gas products help make holiday traditions possible.

Last year, about 384.74 million gallons of gasoline were consumed every day. With many people heading home to be with family over the holidays, gasoline fuels the trips and makes them possible. With just one 42-gallon barrel of oil, 19.4 gallons of gasoline are produced. With the other half of the gallon, products that we use every day are produced. Byproducts of oil and natural gas production include shampoo, candles, trash bags, soap, shoes, footballs, lipstick, cameras, refrigerators and about 6,000 more. Often times people don’t realize that petroleum is used for much more than getting us from point A to point B; however without oil and natural gas we would not have essential items that we need in our every day lives. On top of putting gas in our cars and helping create these products, the industry helps fund roads and emergency services that are depended upon throughout this time of year.

This holiday season, as you make that road trip, find that gift, or simply go through your morning routine, think about all the ways oil and natural gas is in your life. We could not live without it, and it is one more thing that helps make the holidays happy.
