English: Hubbert's upper-bound prediction for US crude oil production (1956), and actual lower-48 states production through 2014
Source Own work
Author Plazak

Hubbert's curve is taken from M. King Hubbert (1956), using his upper-bound estimated ultimate recovery of 200 billion barrels. Actual lower-48 state production (total minus Alaska) is taken from the US Energy Information Administration website. Older production is from US Geological survey publications.
