Expert Response

Hello,
Algae biodiesel has not yet become commercially viable.
You should be able to search out the information about petrol and diesel production rates. Our group doesn't have direct knowledge about fossil fuels.

I'd suggest that you take a look at some of the US Department of Energy information.

http://www.energy.gov/
http://www.energy.gov/eere/articles/making-algal-biofuel-production-more-efficient-less-expensive

This wikipedia article has a fair amount of information on it.
