Yipes - a graphical representation of gasoline use around the world (it ain't pretty)

The Economist created this startling image for its website earlier this month. The "yipes" in my headline is about that bar all the way to the left, the all-U.S. bar. It's no secret we use a lot of gasoline here in the U.S., but seeing it laid out like this just twists my gut in all sorts of weird ways. And makes the news we report on every day here on AutoblogGreen all the more useful (because, you know, I learn things, too).

I also recommend reading the short paragraph that accompanies the image on The Economist's site.
