as it relates to oil usage can be described by the gross domestic product
(GDP per barrel) (GDP/barrel) of oil used . The original data for this is taken from two sources, the and the List of countries by GDP
article from Wikipedia.
First of all, this list is original research, though it consists of simple math, a casual user cannot verify rankings are accurate in a matter of a few minutes, and second of all, its usefulness is limited as it does not accurately reflect GDP energy or carbon intensity as oil is not the only significant hydrocarbon nor energy resource. The fact that many of the numbers from the CIA
are mere guesses (see notes), figures are from differing years, and that many do not reflect the use of oil consumed in the process of making refined products makes this list even less meaningful.
GDP/bbl is calculated by taking the GDP * 1,000,000 and dividing by the bbl/d * 365 to give dollars (USD) of GDP per barrel of oil
