Top 7 Oil Producers

Since last month we all follow what happened in Egypt, ending last week with the resignation of Hosni Mubarak as president of the Country for the last 30 years. Unfortunately, one of the first consequences of these type of acts is the rise of oil prices, in this case because Egypt is strategically located close to the top oil producing countries. This brought me an opportunity to work in a post regarding the top oil producers. After I started this investigation, the information I found was very interesting because there is a slight difference in the raking for the Largest Oil Producing Countries and the  Countries With Largest Oil Reserves,  and I also found interesting the ranking about the oil consumption, so for this post I will try to show the most accurate information I found about these rankings.
