Strong growth in consumption of gasoline while demand for other fuels remains more subdued is creating a headache for oil refiners in the United States and around the rest of the world.

U.S. refineries are configured to turn just under half of the crude petroleum they process into motor gasoline, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

The precise percentage varies somewhat from refinery to refinery depending on their configuration and the crudes they process.

The average gasoline yield ranges from a high of 51 percent for refineries in the Midwest to a low of 42 percent for refineries on the Gulf Coast with a nationwide average of around 45 percent.
