There's an error in the first paragraph; the US consumption as part of world
supply (from the source cited) is 20.8/84.6 = 24.5%, not 43%.

I believe that they have omitted the most important fact.
If US oil consumption were reduced by that amount, the price of oil would
drop back to $0 a barrel and even the Hummer drivers would be happy.

That's not fact. That's fiction.

I agree with you, Mark, but that is another topic that is likely to spawn an
endless thread. I went through this same thing off-list a couple weeks back.
