Less than one month of the world’s consumption of vegetable oil exists. That estimate includes the full range of vegetable oils, from palm oil to peanut oil to canola oil. The available global stockpile of vegetable oil may have reached the minimum acceptable level. To increase the amount of vegetable oil available more grains would need to be crushed, which would reduce the availability of important grains from corn to soybeans to rapeseed.
