U.S. daily consumption of liquid fuels projects to jump to 21.9 million barrels in 2035, compared with 18.8 million barrels in 2009, according to the annual energy outlook by the Energy Information Administration. However, the share of imported liquid fuels, which was 60% in 2005, is expected to decline to 42% in 2035, the EIA said. Increased domestic output and fuel efficiency will lessen import demand, the agency added.
