Examination of the oil consumption commitment of countries.
Oil remains the lifeblood of any war effort today and drives many components of the modern military complex including aircraft, vehicles, warships, small arms, and general industry. For the purposes of the GFP ranking, oil consumption is applied as a penalty to each nation, the higher its consumption the worse effect on a theoretical war effort. Oil consumption can be offset by the oil production value and this is factored in along with a given nation's proven oil reserves.
