The total consumption of petroleum of the U.S. and the world outside of the United States for the year 1918 is compared. Animation is used for this. Per capita consumption is also compared. Water flows over the Niagara Falls. A globe with nine circular parallel lines along the equator rotates. The 9 circular lines denote that if the per capita consumption of petroleum had increased as rapidly abroad as in the U.S. the world's petroleum requirement in 1922 would have been 10 times the actual requirement and if this volume had been loaded into tank cars of the capacity of 10,000 gallons each it would have made a solid train extending around the world at the equator 9 times.
