TheStreet (July 11, 2014) — Global oil demand will rise at the fastest pace in five years in 2015, according to the International Energy Agency.

The demand for oil will be driven in large part by China, which the agency said will see demand increase by more than 4% to about 10.8 million a day. Video provided by TheStreet
