Global Oil Dashboard - Q1 2013

Introducing the "global oil dashboard."  I created this tool to help me track the key quantitative indicators of peak oil.  Oil is a finite resource and peak oil will happen eventually.  Because some experts, such as the Energy Watch Group, believe that peak oil is happening right now, I want to keep track of these indicators on a real-time basis to determine whether we are indeed passing peak oil.  I designed this dashboard to be mostly automated, in order to allow me to easily update it on a quarterly basis.  This dashboard also allows me to keep track of the performance of various "peak oil proof" investments to determine whether my investment hypotheses are correct.
