Who has the oil?

According to William Tamblyn who sent this in:
The SIZE of each country on this map reflects the relative size of its OIL RESERVES.

The COLORS reflect different levels of OIL CONSUMPTION (per country, not per capita -the key is on the left).

 

The map's sources are identified as the BP Statistical Review Year-End 2004 and the Energy Information Administration.
