World Petroleum Use Sets Record High in 2012

The world's consumption of gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, heating oil, and other petroleum products reached a record high of 88.9 million barrels per day (bbl/d) in 2012. Declining consumption in North America and Europe was more than outpaced by growth in Asia and other regions.  A previous article examined regional trends in petroleum consumption between 1980 and 2010; today's article extends that analysis through 2012.  (DOE-EIA)
