EIA revises global liquid fuels demand growth down because of the coronavirus

revisions to global petroleum consumption forecast
Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration

In the February 2020 update of its Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts that global liquid fuels demand will average 101.7 million barrels per day (b/d) in 2020, 1.0 million b/d more than the 2019 average but 378,000 b/d less than was forecast in the January 2020 edition of the STEO.
