The Fossil Fuel Economy infographic by Vouchercloud considers how the price of oil affects not only the economy, but every aspect of our lives.
The effects of oil price fluctuations are far more pervasive than we might initially think. As an example, a drop in the cost of crude oil could potentially reduce the price of condoms and lead to higher rates of safer sex. Moreover, changes in oil prices have the power to affect our thought processes and behaviors. For instance, every ten-percent drop in gas prices corresponds with a one-percent increase in consumers considering more fuel-efficient vehicles.
Those interested in the mysterious ways in which the fossil fuel economy affects seemingly unrelated aspects of our personal lives should take a moment to browse this Vouchercloud infographic.
