Maybe that accounts for some of the methane.

Lots of people write lots of things, why should we pay attention to the author of this report?

Having said that, yes, oil is still the main source of efficient energy, powering even our water extraction systems.

It might also be worth clarifying what we mean by "most used".

Do we quantify usage physically, by volume or mass, or monetary value or something else?

Google Search Engine World Wide Web display is able to produce pages upon tons of results. My own unique found is this particular article on deep market trading: http://www.worldstopexports.com/worl...port-products/

Woah, emerging up to close adjacent 100 in the website encyclopedia treasures.

The question is too vague to have a meaningful answer. When I saw the thread title, i thought it was going to ask for the brand name product with the most global penetration to direct users. But instead everyone is just left to define "product" however they want and then dispute the definitions.

Cup. Everyone has one and uses it everyday.
Not everyone uses chopsticks, nor a plate. But everyone uses a cup.
