Fuel-less 6-8

This funny and informative 16-minute video – a spoof on the movie “Clueless” – follows high-school queen Crystal through the worst day of her young, pampered life. It seems that everything in her life derived from oil has disappeared: her makeup, Daddy’s credit card, gasoline for her beloved BMW and aspirin for her growing stress headache — all gone. But with a little guidance from Miss Watkins, her “extremely cool science teacher,” Crystal gets a better understanding of where oil comes from, how it is processed and how the products made from oil impact our everyday lives.
