Yes. In 2006, 17 million barrels of oil were used to make bottled water, not including transport fuel!
Yes. Enormous amounts of energy is used to bottle water. This has many aspects, because plastics on their own use a lot of energy to manufacture, the amount of raw material used and refined is also very consuming as well as not environmentally friendly. Getting water in the plastic bottles and shipping it is adding to the energy consumed. All of these processes add up to a lot of energy. When compared to, for example, drinking from the tap. Tap water is very carefully filtered and cleaned, governments are very strict in this matter.
