Because there are so many vehicles in the US, each holding a different amount of gasoline, it’s hard to tell how many vehicles fill up a day. But one thing we can track is how much gasoline is used a day and in the U.S. it’s 20,680,000 bbl/day, (last recorded in 2007).
The citation link also tracks what other countries have used so you can compare between nations.
The figure in the other answer refers to total oil consumption, not gasoline. The US in 2010 consumes about 9.1 million barrels of gasoline per day. Even with all the imports and domestic production, and with our refineries going flat out, we cannot make enough gasoline for this rate of consumption and we import significant amounts (close to a million barrels a day) of refined gasoline.
