Consumption averages about 380 million gallons of gasoline per day in 2004 and is reaching 400 million gallons per day in 2006."

Answer . Since we consume about 400million gallons of gasoline each day, that would be the same amount of gasoline sold each day in the US.
You would spend about $2,400 per year if you drive an average 15,000 miles per year at 25 mpg and the price of gas at $4 dollars a gallon.
The U.S consumed about 64.3 billion gallons of finished motor gasoline in 2008. There are approximately 43 gallons of motor gasoline per barrel (and 19.6 gallons can be refine…d from each barrel of crude oil). This statistic does not include other distillates such as jet fuel and heating oil. The estimated use by the US Department of Energy was higher: For 2010, it was estimated at 138 billion gallons. For 2011, projected use was 142 billion gallons (9.12 million barrels a day).
Let's assume the 'average' person drives 20 miles round trip to work each week, and another 30 miles for errands, etc. 20 x 5 = 100 miles for work + 30 for all else = 130 mi…les (avg) per week. If we figure the 'average' car gets 24 MPG, then divide 24 into 130, which = 5.41 gallons of fuel each week. Multiply 5.41 x 52 (weeks) and that equals = 281.32 gallons. You can plug whatever numbers apply to your usage and come up with a total. Here's a rough estimate based on general numbers. On average the personal vehicle is driven 12,000 miles. The average efficiency is 21.5 miles per gallon. So the average gasoline used by each vehicle is 580 gallons annually. According to the US Bureau of Transit Statistics there were 250,844,644 registered passenger vehicles in 2006. The population of the USA is 300,000 people. So automobiles times gallons per auto, divided by persons comes to 486 gallons of gas per person. If you want to include just drivers, and not every person, there are about 200,000 drivers in the USA according to the Federal Highway Commission. So each automobile driver uses on average 729 gallons per year.
"in the United States, something like 178 million gallons of gasoline is consumed everyday."(US Oil Consumption)
Global wood consumption has increased 64 percent since 1961. (See Figure 1.) More than half of the 3.4 billion cubic meters of wood consumed annually is burned for fuel; the r…est is used in construction and for paper and a variety of other wood products. Demand for lumber and pulp is expected to rise between 20 and 40 percent by 2010. Forest plantations produce 22 percent of all lumber, pulp, and other industrial wood; old-growth and secondary-growth forests provide the rest (Matthews and Hammond 1999:8, 31; Brown 1999:41). . http://earthtrends.wri.org/features/view_feature.php?fid=7&theme=6
