Do Oil Imports Affect Gas Prices? (Infographic)

Infographic on gas prices and oil imports

Some cool news: an infographic I designed for the nonprofit ocean conservation group, Oceana, on oil imports and gas prices, has been published at the Huffington Post. Oceana researched the question whether the amount of oil a country imports affects its gas prices at the pump, and the answer was no. I helped translate this information into this infographic on gas prices.

I used to work for Oceana as an attorney, so it was great to work with them in a new capacity as a commissioned graphic designer/illustrator.

  1. Congrats on the infographic. I really like the oil in the tanker trunks. This conveys a lot of information. I tweeted and FBed the links. Part of my neighborhood was sold during a bankruptcy proceeding to an oil and gas company, who will frack it once all the permits are approved/regulations in place. The issue of gas prices comes up almost every time I discuss concerns about fracking. I appreciate you sharing this. Plus, I just began graphic design classes. Your graphic is a great example for me. :)

    1. Thanks, Stacy! I appreciate your comment. I'm still a neophyte when it comes to graphics and there's always more to learn. The more I learn about fracking, the more depressed I get.
