That graphic alone is misleading. Its only a small part of the economic picture.
Maybe you should put this up as comparison by how each US state's GDP stacks up to other nations, and what do you know it makes perfect sense why we use so much petrol. When California alone has a GDP the size of France. and that is 1 of 50 states, however it is the biggest GDP. a better comparison would be US against the EU. when comparing GDP's and Petrol used.

Liters per capita would be a more illuminating metric.

^agreed with the comment above, but even if we'd represent an image with the liters/person consumption, I'm probably sure the cheapest cialis prices USA would still be on top :/

how can it be misleading? its simply displaying facts. and why would you divide it into states? its comparing COUNTRIES... california is the best choice use levitra not a country. if it were split into states, you'd have to split the other countries into provinces and enter site order generic viagra prefectures too... the point of the graphic is to illustrate how the united states as a WHOLE is waaayy too addicted to oil.
