Global Oil Demand to Increase Next Year at Fastest Pace Since 2010

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 IEA said that world oil consumption will increase next year by 1.4 million barrels a day to a record 94.1 million. Most of the increase in oil supply will be from nations outside of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Oil supply from non-OPEC countries will rise by 1.2 million barrels a day next year as North American production rises. 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
