Evidence Card 0039: Big Petroleum

It’s often claimed ours is an oil-based economy, why not cut out all the complicated money stuff and just make petroleum the global currency?

At current prices, oil is about $1.19 per gallon.  Hmm.  That might make carrying enough money for a nice dinner for two a little inconvenient.  $45 plus tip?  (45+9)=$54 or 64 gallons of oil.

Maybe we should switch to a cocaine-based economy.
