This is my first game from Wastelands. So far I am liking it. I would probably compare it to Commander EAW. This is a good thing, because that was a great game. What I would like to know is what do the symbols next to the city hexes stand for. I get the numbers; the left number seems to be max supply generated, and the right number looks like the hex victory points. What I need to know is why some cities have oil barrels, or drops of oil next to them? I don't see where I have a stockpile of oil. Do my motorized units use oil to move? If so is this split out from supply consumption? I think I missed this in the manual and the tutorials. Can someone more familiar please explain?

Thanks!
MJ

The Oil barrel represents supply source, in other words it is a city which distributes supply to other cities and later to your units.

The Oil drop represents locations which are only the source of resources, so rather something like industry regions than cities.
