In September 2010, it averaged 9,163,000 barrels per day x 42 = 384,000,000 gallons per day.
Around 178 million gallons of gasoline are used every day in America, according to figures from 2008.
That article has done its math wrong – yes, about half the total 19.6 million barrels of total oil is gasoline – but it is not relevant that a barrel yields 19.5 gallons of gasoline. Gasoline is measured in barrels just like oil. The US has not consumed as small an amount of gasoline as 178 million gallons per day since about 1962.
