Visualizing Oil Production: 1965 – 2007

Here is the flip side of my earlier chart on oil consumption trends from 1965-2007. This one is a dynamic look at oil production during the period. Don’t forget to set the bubble size to "barrels", and you can hover over the key to see which color corresponds to which bubble.

Lots of interesting stuff pops out, including the backslide in U.S. production, the Saudi flatlining, the emergence and deline of Russia, etc.

Update: Click just right of the y-axis to make it log(Growth) rather than just Growth.
