    Advantages 1)High energy yield. Lots of energy released just from burning the stuff 2)Low cost energy plants. Basically need to set it on fire and use steam to turn a turbine. Disadvantages 1)Only a limited amount of the stuff. We're running out in our lifetime probably. 2)Difficult to find and refine. They build massive off shore rigs just to get oil
