The U.S. Drinks a Lot of Alcohol…But Nowhere Close To Most Europeans or Russians

According to a map put together by “The Economist”, the average American drinks between 7.5 and 10 liters of pure alcohol every year.  That’s a lot…but it’s not even CLOSE to Europeans or Russians.

Russia and almost every European country has an average of AT LEAST 12.5 liters of alcohol per person every year.  People in Moldova drink the most, at 18.2 liters per person per year…and a lot of it is moonshine.

In between are Australians, Nigerians, and Argentineans, who drink between 10 liters and 12.5 liters per year.

Northern African and Middle Eastern countries usually drink the least alcohol, at less than 2.5 liters per person.

Our 7.5 to 10 liters of pure alcohol means the average American drinks 254 to 338 ounces of alcohol every year.

That seems a little high…it means the average person has at least 500 drinks a year…but maybe the heavy drinkers are REALLY making up for the sober people.
