According to this piece in the Seattle Times, Americans used 8.93 million barrels of gasoline a day in 2003. A barrel holds 42 gallons, so that'* roughly 375 million gallons per day.

Ditto on my '69 Executive... it'* running fine, but MAN does it suck down the gas. I don't think fuel economy was a big issue in 1969, since just about every car produced had at least a 350 V-8 (mine is a 400 2-bbl, which was the most economical option for Executives that year!) Now it is kind of ironic that it'* a BIG DEAL if a new car has an 8-cylinder engine. And if it'* RWD too... it'* front page news!
