An entire barrel of crude oil is required to produce just one pair of truck tires.

If the tires are burned later, each pair will release up to five gallons of that oil back into the ground, where it can contaminate the land and water.

If you're concerned about oil consumption, you don't have to consider just the gasoline and the oil itself - when you use tires you are also consuming oil.
