Oil consumption in France 2006-2018

This statistic represents oil consumption in France between 2006 and 2018. In 2018, France consumed more than 1.6 million barrels of oil per day. While France's oil consumption gradually decreased from 2006 to 2013, it achieved a certain stability from 2014 on.
This graph reached its lowest point in 2016. That year, oil consumption dropped below 1.6 million barrels per day in France.

It is interesting to compare France's oil consumption with its oil refinery capacity. Between 2000 and 2008, it amounted to nearly two million barrels per day.

Within the European Union, about 13.3 million barrels per day of oil were consumed in 2018. We observe a similar drop between 2006 and 2014.
