Yeah I can't find a current source for exploration, drilling, extraction, and transport to the refinery.

ICE noise is just plain annoying. Even a great V6, V8 or V12 after about 10 minutes becomes tedious. And the smell of the exhaust from any car over about 3 years old (gas or diesel) is getting about as irritating as walking behind a smoker. Its only a matter of time before everyone thinks the same way frankly.

Try that for 5 or 6 hours and you'll be frazzled, hearing shot. First thing to replace on a new beater was always the glasspaks/straight pipes.

I want to point out something I find especially nefarious in that same ad campaign from the OP. (Besides the fact that it's oil co marketing)
they have begun to refer to Natural Gas, coal, and oil/gas as "kinds of energy" and their products, generally, as "energy". I know it's already obvious to all of you where I'm going with this, but I'll explain anyway. Oil is NOT "energy" and Nat Gas is NOT a "kind of energy". They are merely substances that, when combined with Oxygen in a chemical reaction, are able to create a "kind of energy". IOW, We Burn them to make Heat. Great for them because the moment the burning starts, a deficit condition is created, requiring the purchase, and subsequent burning of more of their product(s). The attempt to get us to equate the product with the general concept of the energy we need and use (but could get from other sources) is the worst disgusting spin. It drives me crazy, and there currently seems to be no limit to their ability to try to spin us all. They have the budget. I'm trying to take some of it away from them. ML
