Petroleum products are very diverse. Asphalt is another product that we
use to line all of our streets with. Coca farmers use gasoline to soak
coca leave to remove their color. The gasoline is then used, after a few
more steps, to make an off-white base that artist use around the world.
Other products from petroleum products include plastic, fertilizers,
transparent tape, tennis balls, and even roller skate wheels.
