Storyboard Text

  • On august 28, 1859 George Bissell and Edwin L Drake made the first successful use of a drilling rig on a well that was made to produce oil. Ever since, oil has been one of the most used things.
  • The Oil Story
  • The first use for oil was for a kerosene lamp.  Kerosene lamps were invented in 1854.
  • Oil was then used for a lot of things like cars, buses,planes etc. 
  • Oil was also used for electricity. Electricity uses a lot of oil because there are lots of things that require electricity such as lights, air conditioning, heaters, refridgerators etc. Oil can also be used for cooking.
  • But there is a problem. We are using way too much oil than what we actually have. Soon, we might end up running out of oil.
  • If we run out of oil, there won't be anything to power cars and there won't be any electricity.
