Gas is costly

1 barrel of oil provides the same amount of energy as one (reasonably well fed) man working for 25,000 hours (or 12 men working full time for a year)

1 barrel of oil costs $1 to extract from the earth

1 barrel of oil =46 gallons of gasoline

46 gallons of gasoline costs around  $170
