Electric power generation by very large generators is probably the most efficient.
Least polluting in terms of greenhouse gases is probably products make from petroleum.
The most beneficial to greatest number of people is all of the above.

Transportation fuels: gasoline, jet fuel and diesel.
Very little oil is used to generate electricity, usually only where other sources of fuels aren't available.
