These numbers are just crazy! Answered
I was looking at one of many websites I go to daily and found this really cool picture. It (the first picture) is of 8,000 42-gallon oil barrels. Which is the amount of oil consumed in the United States every two minutes. Crazy, huh?
The second picture is the first one zoomed to see the detail at actual print size.
There are more things like this here, and you will be amazed at just how much we use in such a small amount of time. Well it isn't just stuff we use, but most of it is.
I never would have thought the United States would use 2 million plastic bottles every five minutes.
