I am just trying to figure out where the graph in your OP came from.
That or they are hoarding fuel reserves in anticipation of a conflict.
I am considering this from the angle of even though they want to implode the U.S. They still need to have the resources to maintain control of the territory and territories abroad.
Did you read the whole article OP?
That being said? The numbers here don't make much sense and I'd want to ask truckers if they are seeing this kind of drop off of traffic. Rush hours and general traffic in the cities should be remarkably down to see the gas consumption drop like that. Truckers may see half a dozen of America's biggest cities (or more) in one week. So.. Is it down, drivers?

I am calling BS on this, though no doubt there are plenty of people cutting back. I know that in the last decade there have been quite a few people moving to high gas-mileage cars, but I still see huge trucks everywhere, so I can't believe that gas usage has dropped significantly.
