Demand Surge Outpaces Production

The world runs on oil -- consuming 89 million barrels a day.[1] While production is higher across the globe, new supplies can’t keep up. Over the past decade, oil consumption has grown by an average of 1.34%, while production has grown only 1.49%, barely keeping pace.[2] And with almost all of the 5 million barrels a day in excess capacity[3] located in the volatile Middle East, supplies are increasingly prone to disruptions. With alternative energy sources still years away from mainstream adoption, the upward pressure on oil prices is likely to continue for years to come. In fact, between 2002 and 2012, oil prices have posted an annual compounded growth rate of 14%.[4] See more
