The economy of Mexico depends on its oil, which is controlled by PEMEX (PEtroleos MEXicanos), a state-own oil company. Mexico produces around 3 Million barrels of oil a day (Statistics for 2005: 2.5m., Statistics for 2010: 3 m), and it is in the 10 countries who produce most oil worldwide. Mexico experienced a boost in the production in 1980s, but the production of oil has dropped significantly since 2005.
