- Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration has upgraded its estimates of global oil reserves by 11% after scouring 41 countries and finding a lot more “technically recoverable” shale oil and shale gas than it did the last time it filed a similar report, in 2011.
Since then, the EIA’s shale gas estimates alone have jumped by 10% and its estimate of gas reserves has soared by 47%. The U.S., China and Argentina are all largely responsible for the upticks in shale oil and gas numbers, while Russia’s shale oil stockpile and Algeria’s shale gas resources also place them among the EIA’s top four potential producers in each category.
