Need crude oil

There are two reasons that this can happen. First of all, your refineries and oil power plants (or other consumers of oil) may be using it up faster than it can be replenished. Check to see that the delivery trucks are not stuck in traffic too much--if they are, then a refinery may use up its stock while waiting for more. Also, if oil is building up at the oil wells (i.e. their local storage gets full even part of the time), then add delivery truck garages to the oil wells up to the limit allowed.


Second, the oil may not be getting routed to the oil consumers in the first place. Make sure that all oil consumers are set to "accept local deliveries". Also, if their oil stocks are low, then go to your trade depots/ports and tell their oil storage lots to use the oil locally instead of exporting it--this will redirect deliveries to your local consumers.
