Description

From Summary: "The year 1930 marked a turning point in record-breaking performances for refining industry. From the time of the first refinery statistics of the Bureau of Mines in 1916 through 1929 the utilization of crude at refineries and the production of the principal product (motor fuel) has increased steadily. In 1930, however, the depressed conditions had a noticeable effect on motor-fuel consumption, which only increased 5 per cent over that in 1929, compared with an average annual increase for the preceding decade of 16 per cent.
