### Around 40% of the world's fuel oil is consumed by ships!

Oil seems like more and more of a precious commodity these days. Fossil fuels are depleting and gas prices are rising.

Of course, this price increase isn't only due to decreasing oil supplies, but the fact remains that oil is a non-reusable resource.

Oil fuels our travel - from cars to airplanes to ships. Considering the prevalence of these first two forms of transportation, you may be surprised to know that almost 40% of the world's fuel oil is consumed by ships.
