Could the Rise of Vacuum Gas Oil (VGO) Signal the Fall of Oil?

Vacuum gas oil (VGO) is a mix of hydrocarbons produced during the extraction of crude oil. VGO was relatively useless until recently when large scale vacuum distillation became feasible. Vacuum distillation allows the mix of hydrocarbons to be broken apart into smaller and more useful sized products - like gasoline, propane, and diesel. Over the last several years, the use of VGO has skyrocketed, which is be a sign that the oil and gas industry to fighting to squeeze every last bit of efficiency out of their extraction processes.
