It was 1973, and Cameron, then only 19, had taken a summer job with Transport Canada, interviewing small aircraft pilots in Vancouver.

  • The world's biggest oil exporter has quietly seized a market milestone from the U.S.

    As the United States raced over the past five years toward becoming a global petroleum powerhouse, the world’s biggest oil exporter Saudi Arabia quietly seized a market milestone from America: the largest source of peak summer demand. From June through August, when temperatures in Riyadh routinely rise above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius), Saudi Arabia diverts as much as a tenth of its crude output to fuel power plants that run full tilt to meet surging demand from air conditioners. At the height of the U.S. energy boom, Texas landowner John Baen received about US$100,000 a month in royalty payments from companies producing oil and natural gas on his property. The result is that Saudi Arabia’s winter-to-summer “swing” in oil consumption has eclipsed that of the United States, where gasoline consumption jumps by as much as 10 per cent every summer as millions of families take advantage of school holidays and warm weather to embark on the classic American road trip.
