Top 10 Largest Oil Consuming Countries in the World
The massive oil production all around the world simply has to do with the ever increasing oil consumption. Even though the automobiles and other vehicles have become quite sophisticated when it comes to consuming efficient energy, more and more people are now in the driving seat which in turn leads to an ever increasing demand.
It is evident that countries with the most sophisticated infrastructure and those that are heavily industrialized are going to consume the most oil. So even though there are some developing countries that are top oil producers, the list of top 10 oil consuming countries in the world consists mainly of developed nations. Another fact about this list is that only four out of 10 countries listed below – Russia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Canada – are non-importers, meaning their oil production is more than their consumption. The information is prepared by government ( U.S Energy information ) and world fact book.
