Every 42-gallon (159-liter) barrel of oil can be refined into
  • 19.4 gallons (73 liters) of gas,
  • 10.5 gallons (40 liters) of diesel, and
  • 4.1 gallons (16 liters) of jet fuel, not to mention lots of other marketable stuff.

Every 42-US-gallon barrel of crude provides a little more than 44 gallons of petroleum products. This is gained due to processing of crude. From one barrel we get (in gallons):
  • 7.27 gallons (27.5 liters): Other products (feedstocks for petrochemical plants, asphalt, bitumen, tar, etc.)
  • 1.72 gallons (6.5 liters): Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG)
  • 3.82 gallons (14.5 liters): Jet Fuel
  • 1.76 gallons (6.6 liters): Heavy Fuel Oil (Residual)
  • 1.75 gallons (6.6 liters): Other Distillates (Heating Oil)
  • 9.21 gallons (35 liters): Diesel
  • 19.15 gallons (72.5 liters): Gasoline

From petrochemical feedstocks many everyday-life products are then obtained. Some examples are:
  • fertilizers for agriculture
  • plastic toys and gadgets (bags, computer cases, etc.)
  • bubble gums
  • car tires
  • perfumes
  • petroleum jelly
  • ammonia
  • washing liquids
