USA uses enough oil to fill the Empire State Building 3 times over every day

Since President Trump withdrew the USA from the Paris Agreement, we thought it would be a good time to look at just how much petrol the USA uses when compared with other large economies.

It may not surprise you that the USA 'leads' the world in terms of petrol usage. But it may surprise you when you see just how much petrol they use when compared with other major economies.

The USA uses 19,396,000 barrels of petrol per day. That's enough to fill the Empire State Building almost 3 times over.

USA

This is a full Empire State Building more than China, who use 11,968,000 barrels in a day.

China

By comparison, Russia and the United Kingdom 3,113,000 and 1,559,000 barrels per day. Or 1/2 and a 1/5 of the Empire State Building every day respectively.

Russia

UK

This is just one reason of the many reasons why people are so concerned about the USA removing themselves from the Paris Agreement.
