66 Percent of Your Fill-Up Goes Into Oil Company Coffers

Wired, Feb 8 2013 - A new study by the Union of Concerned Scientists found that, over the average lifespan of a vehicle, owners will spend about $20,000 in fuel during its 15-year run on the road and $14,000 will go directly to oil companies. For every $50 fill-up, $33 goes into the coffers of Chevron, ExxonMobile or BP, while very little of the remaining cash goes into the local economy or even back to oil company investors.  http://www.wired.com/autopia/2013/02/ucs-oil-company-study
