The graph below compares figures for the production and consumption of energy in the US from 1950 to 2000. It also predicts figures for 2025.

The graph illustrates the US's production and consumption of energy in the 50- year period from 1950 to 2000 as well as the predictions for year 2025. The figures are shown in energy units, which are quadrillions of British Thermal Units.
As can be seen, the tendency for the US's figures was decidedly upward, and energy rates are projected to continue this trend up until 2025. The most significant rise happened in the period between around 1955 and 1972, when the American's energy production and consumption experienced a growth of around 20 energy units. The figures then followed similar patterns, though not to the same degree, ending year 2000 with energy rates within a range of 65 and 95.
Another striking feature is that at the end of the period, the difference between production and consumption became greater, with year 2000 witnessing import figures surging to 30 energy units. It is expected that the amount of energy used will far exceed the quantity produced in the next 25 years, making American import rates soaring to 60 energy units in 2025.
