Do we use more oil driving our cars or making the plastic we use?

    According to a US Department of Energy’s agency, Energy Information Administration, about 44-48% of the oil refinery product is gasoline for cars. Only about 2.1-2.9% of the product is naphtha and other oil for the petrochemical industry. Note that only a part of that is used for plastic production, as there is a huge variety of other products made by that industry. So it’s definitely cars – a few orders of magnitude kind of ‘definitely’.
