Model Answer

The line chart depicts the numbers for oil use in four nations, the US, China, the Middle East and Western Europe and Japan over a period of 21 years from 2009 to 2030.

Overall, it is apparent that the US consumes most of the oil in first six years, but it is expected that oil consumption will be decreased in the coming years, while the Middle East and China are predicted to increase.

To begin with, the United State, consumption recorded below than ten million in first six years from 2009 to 2015 but it is predicted that the consumption of oil Neill be decreased to just over 4 million in 2030. Coming to Western Europe and Japan. This nation also follows a similar trend as the US. I mean to say, the numbers began from 4 million barrels a day in 2009, but in the coming years, the numbers will have dwindled to 2 million.

Furthermore, with China and the Middle East. Both countries started and end with the same points, amounting for below than 2 million barrels per day in 2009, will be about 3 million in 2030 but in between time China consume a bit more oil than the Middle East
