Is that the "average person of legal drinking age", or just the average person, in general? I suppose my question is, does that account for the millions of children who (presumably) drank 0 gallons of alcohol in 2004?

That would also apply to the use of the full US population (291 million) vs. the population of legal drinkers in the US....

At any rate, I sincerely doubt that one college could account for 2% of total US alcohol consumption. The entire state of West Virginia? Maybe. But not just Morgantown...
