From a page on the Energy Information Administration website:

"The average American uses 500 gallons of gasoline every year."

Please let me know if this is the information you need. If this isn't
what you're looking for, more details would be helpful.

I'm glad to have been able to help you find what you were looking for.
I have reposted the material below, with some extra information.

"The average American uses 500 gallons of gasoline every year."

Energy Information Administration

The page cited above was rounding to the nearest hundred. Here's an
even more precise figure: 464 gallons per year. In addition to the
national average, this site gives figures for all 50 states:

California Energy Commission: U.S. Gasoline Per Capita Use by State 2004

This is the Google search string that led me to the information posted above:

Google Web Search: "average OR typical american" "gallons of gasoline"

I hope this is helpful. If anything is unclear or incomplete, please
request clarification; I'll be glad to offer further assistance before
you rate my answer.
