see-peak-oil-02.jpg I picked this image up on Treehugger, who got it from the Oil Drum website devoted to peak oil. I think it really helps us envision what it means for the oil to be running out.

Here is a picture the Abqaiq oilfield in Saudi Arabia. It's a transversal slice obtained from an instrument that measures fluid densities. The blue area is water that has been injected into the field to push the oil back to the top, the red area is the gas cap of the field... and the green zone is the actual oil.
