Refining methods are constantly being
improved. A variety of complex operations
are now used which have improved their
output. Refineries today turn more than half
of every barrel of crude oil into gasoline. One
barrel is equal to 159 litres (42 US gallons).
This is a big advance from only 70 years ago
when only 41 litres (11 gallons) of gasoline
were produced from each barrel of crude.
