Global Petrol Usage

A graph published by The Economist gives one pause. Sometimes it takes a visual reminder to be aware of what is really going on in the world. Haven't clicked on the link yet? Okay, take a moment to visualize something:

How much gasoline/petrol does the United States use, vis a vis other countries?

Have a picture in your mind?

Okay, now click the link.

And tell us, in a comment, whether (and how) your mental picture was different than the graph.
