    Default meaning of sentences

    Do the following sentences have the same meaning?
    A: The most oil is used in America.
    B: In no other country is more oil used than in America.

    Many thanks.

    Haven't you already asked this?

    The answer is they mean the same in essence.

    This is something which crops up today and I'm posting it.

    I often check before posting a question in case I have already posted.

    Rest assured. I don't like to post twice.

    Best wishes
