Refineries in the United States produce 19 gallons of motor gasoline from every barrel of oil. The rest of the barrel is used to make distillate and residual fuel oils, jet fuel and petroleum coke. Liquids that are shipped in barrels include wine, whiskey, brandy, vinegar and beer. Traditional wooden barrels were largely replaced in the 19th century by corrugated fiberboard boxes for dry items. Beginning in the mid-20th century, most fluids were packed in steel drums.
