We use a lot of energy in our homes, in businesses, in industry, and for personal travel and transporting goods.
What uses more energy in our homes — heating, cooling, lighting, or powering electronics like TVs, computers, and MP3 players? And, do houses in the United States use more electricity or natural gas?
More energy is consumed for industry and manufacturing than for any other purpose. What industries use more energy — refining, chemical, paper, or metal industries?
What is the connection between energy and the environment? Each energy source has impacts on the environment.
How do commercial buildings — like offices, hospitals, schools, places of worship, warehouses, hotels, barber shops, libraries, shopping malls — use energy?
All together, we drive our cars, motorcycles, trucks, and buses about 3 trillion miles per year. Combined, gasoline and diesel make up 84% of all of the energy used for transportation.
