Japan and North America, followed by the Middle East, are the regions where the most electricity per person is generated from gas. At the other extreme, Central and Southeastern Africa barely generate any electricity from gas. Many territories in Central America also generate no electricity from gas
In absolute terms, the United States generates almost twice as much electricity from gas as the second biggest generator: the Russian Federation. The Russian Federation is a net exporter of gas and coal, whereas the United States is a net importer of these goods.
