We just learned about the Fluid Catalytic Cracking.

Turning oil from the ground into something we an use takes a lot of work and uses a lot of heating, cooling and mixing with chemicals.
When it is all done, there are a lot of things that oil is used for.

One of the most well known things we make from oil is Gasoline.

This is the fuel used for cars, airplanes, lawnmowers or any kind of a motor that burns gas.

Burning gasoline for fuel causes a lot of pollution, so there are a lot of people making electric cars to help make that better!
