Using statistics from 2007, America consumes 20,680,000 barrels of oil a year. That means on average an American uses 0.66 barrels of oil per day. In a year, an American will use approximately 24 barrels of oil. Americans consume more oil every year than any other country.
The US consumes about 20,000,000 barrels of oil per day, not per year as indicated in the other answer. The math is correct, however, and the per person numbers are also correct for total oil consumption in a year.
If the questioner wants gasoline, the US consumes as of July 2010 9.3 million barrels of gasoline per day x 365 =3.4 billion barrels per year divided by 307 million population = 11 barrels per year per person, x 42 = 465 gallons of gasoline per year for every man, woman and child in the US.
