Americans use massive amounts of oil. Although we make up only 5% of the world’s population, the U.S. burns 25% of the Earth's oil production. America  characterizes the oil-dependent lifestyle.

Oil is the raw material that makes the functioning possible of nearly every element of the U.S. economy, directly or indirectly. It supplies 40% of the nation’s power supply—way above any other source. Oil gives power to our industries, gives heat to our buildings, and supplies the raw material for plastics, paints, textiles, and many more materials. But it is in our transportation that oil is most important.

Oil supplies 97% of the fuel consumed by America’s gigantic fleet of trucks, trains, planes, ships, buses and cars.


Proper Power & Energy, Inc. announced recently that it has restructured its executive management team and entered into a strategic alliance.
