US drivers to cut gasoline use for first time since ’12


American drivers are poised to pump less for the first time in six years.
US gasoline demand is expected to fall by 10,000 barrels a day in 2018 compared to last year, according to the Energy Information Administration. Overall consumption is forecast at 9.31 million barrels a day, the agency said in its monthly Short-Term Energy Outlook.
