Oil is one of the world's top money-making commodities nowadays for producing gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, and many other products. In the modern world, oil is one of the most vital resources. The oil extraction process is harmful to the environment and is considered a double-edged sword.

The world's largest oil consumer is the United States, and the world's largest oil producer. But despite being the world's largest oil producer, the U.S. also imports much more oil from dozens of other countries.

With different types of oil production, crude oil is vital for the modern economy. It helps to power internal combustion vehicles and helps to produce plastics too. A lot of investment and capital is needed by a country to bring it all to market. An oil field must export oil overseas through pipelines or a railway to ship oil to a seaport.

The price of crude oil depends on many factors, including demand, supply, economic conditions, and whether financial data meets estimates. If we see at the long, the price of oil will also depend on the increased adoption of electric vehicles in the market, and emerging oil markets need to power their economies. Top 5 oil exporting countries – Saudi Arabia has 17 percent of the world's proven petroleum reserves; Russia makes up to 14 percent of the world's total supply with crude output reaching 10.5 million barrels per day; Iraq has proven crude oil reserves of 145.02 billion barrels it gives the country substantial energy potential; Canada ranks 4th in the chart of crude oil exports country according to the barrels count and last but not the least United Arab Emirates ranks 5th with approximately 2,305,000 crude oil per day.
