Know : Long list of Petroleum based Products

plasticThe environmental impact of petroleum has been often negative because it is toxic to almost all forms of life. The possibility of climate change exists. Petroleum, commonly referred to as oil, is closely linked to virtually all aspects of present society, especially for transportation and heating for both homes and for commercial activities. 

One 42-gallon barrel of oil creates 19.4 gallons of gasoline/petrol. The rest (over half) is used to make things classified as follows (This is just a few of over 6000 items that are made of petroleum based products)
