In April 2010 a massive oil spill began in the Gulf. The entire country was glued to the news until the well was capped, and then we forgot about it. As the year anniversary was approaching I became curious, just how much oil was that exactly? Where would it have gone? What I found was shocking. So in an effort to further our discussion on oil dependency I created this short animation to help illustrate just how dependent we truly are on oil.
