The US Energy Information Administration reports that the 2006 global energy consumption was 472 quadrillion Btu in 2006 and is forecast to increase up to 552 quadrillion Btu in 2015. This is a 44% increase within the nine year span. A majority of the growth is expected to come from Asia, particularly in China and India.
Energy usage is not the same as fuel consumption. The US in 2009 consumed about 3.3 billion barrels (multiply by 42 to get gallons) of gasoline, 500 million barrels of jet fuel, and 1.3 billion barrels of diesel fuel oil. There are other fuels, but those are the biggies.
