The chart on the left shows that the most important source of oil is situated in the Middle East, with more than half of the global oil resource. With a percentage from 15 to 5 percent, it has been followed by Canada, Central and South America, Eastern Europe and Africa, while Western Europe do not own a consistent proportion of oil reserve, since it reaches the 1,47 percent only. It is interesting to see that, comparing those proportions with the chart of the annual percentage consumption, who owns the less is who consumes the most: Asia, the US and Western Europe, whose oil stocks are below 5 percent, are up to 20 percent of the overall oil demand, whereas the Middle East supplies the majority of its oil stock, since its consumption stays at 6.15 percent. Australia and New Zealand are the bottom countries of the list, with a poor 0.30 percent of oil reserve and, at the same time, a 1.31 percent of annual oil demand. The reason why below these low percentages probably lies on the geographical distance which makes the trade highly expensive for both countries.
