Products From a Barrel of Oil.

Source: American Petroleum Institute ( Figures are based on 1995 average yields for U.S. refineries. One barrel contains 42 gallons of crude oil. The total volume of products made is 44.2 GALLONS -- 2.2 gallons greater than the original 42 gallons of crude oil. This represents "processing gain," where other chemicals are added to the refining process to create the final products.

But, I don't see where napalm fits into that diagram.
