Two pretentious oil reports re
cently appeared. One was by a com
mittee of federal and private geolo
gists who fix the amount of our
available petroleum at 9,500,000.-
000 barrels, and the duration o f the
flow at 20 years. Another report
by the American Petroleum Institute
claims 5,300,000,000 barrels recov
erable by present methods, and 26.-
000,000,000 barrels that may be re
covered by processes yet to come.
The production in 1924, was 713,-
But surveys of the oil shale fields
indicate that Colorado alone has 80,-
000,000,000 barrels of recoverable
shale oil; Kentucky has 50,000,000,-
000; and Oregon, California, Utah,
Wyoming, Nevada and Ohio have
vast possibilities. It will take a lot
of flivvering to exhaust these fields.
The point for all Americans to re
member is, that this nation produces
and consumes the bulk of all petrol
eum products, and it is essential that
we maintain our leadership in this
field of industry.
