A Picture is Worth... Gasoline Consumption Per Day

In light of the Clinton-McCain gas tax holiday proposal I think this statistic (shown after the jump) from the Economist and BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2005 should be highlighted.

The image shows gasoline consumption per day around the world. It shows that the USA is consuming more gasoline than 20 other countries do together, every day.

If there is anyone that should get tax cuts it's the people who buy small and fuel-efficient vehicles. Or even better, the people who use public transportation instead.

Time to stop the blame shifting - by country, by political party, by interested group. USA consumption leads the global problem.

When we get over the latest panic about gas prices, we will still want to tow boats and take our families to the lake or drive to the amusement park,

and it is very likely that we will be burning gasoline to get there
