In the U.S lethal injection. is the most commonly current form of capital punishment. Otherwise, there probably is no "most common" form. Hanging in the past has certainly taken precedent. As well as beheading in France via the guillotine, or by sword or axe in other parts of the world. For a time, the electric chair and gas chamber were popular in the US.
