U.S. gasoline prices in 2015 were lowest since 2009

Jan 7, 2016
U.S. regular retail gasoline prices averaged $2.43 per gallon (gal) in 2015, 93 cents/gal (28%) less than in 2014 and the lowest annual average price since 2009. Lower crude oil prices in 2015 were the main cause for lower gasoline prices. In 6 of the 10 cities for which EIA collects weekly retail price data, gasoline prices did not exceed $3.00/gal.

Crude oil prices started 2015 relatively low, ended the year lower

Jan 6, 2016
Crude oil prices ended 2015 below $40 per barrel (b), the lowest level since early 2009.

Dec 31, 2015
• In October, dry natural gas production was the highest for the month since EIA began reporting dry natural gas production data in 1973. Preliminary dry natural gas production for October 2015 was 2,303 billion cubic feet (Bcf), or 74.3 Bcf/day. This level was a 1.5 Bcf/day (2.1%) increase from production of 72.7Bcf/day in October 2014. • October’s dry natural gas consumption level was the highest on record for the month. Preliminary total natural gas consumption for October 2015 was 2,002 Bcf, or 64.6 Bcf/day. This level was an increase of 4.3% from 1,920 Bcf in October 2014, or 2.6 Bcf/day. • Year-over-year total consumption of dry natural gas in October decreased in two of the four consuming sectors, with the exceptions being industrial, which increased slightly, and electric power deliveries, which increased significantly year to year. Deliveries of natural gas by consuming sector in October were as follows: o Residential deliveries were 200 Bcf, or 6.5 Bcf/day, down 5.7% from 6.8 Bcf/day in October 2014. o Commercial deliveries were 193 Bcf, or 6.2 Bcf/day, down 4.5% from 6.5 Bcf/day in October 2014. o Industrial deliveries were 612 Bcf, or 19.7 Bcf/day, up 0.7% from 19.6 Bcf/day in October 2014. o Electric power deliveries were 797 Bcf, or 25.7 Bcf/day, up 13.2% from 22.7 Bcf/day in October 2014.

Independent energy assessments confirm quality of EIA’s commercial buildings data

Dec 16, 2015
Independent energy assessments of a subset of the buildings surveyed in EIA's Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey have confirmed the quality of data gathered by interviewers.

Independent energy assessments confirm quality of EIA's commercial buildings data

Dec 15, 2015
As part of an effort to make EIA’s energy consumption surveys as accurate and efficient as possible, EIA invited the National Research Council (NRC) to review the Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) data-gathering process and make recommendations for improvements. The NRC suggested sending professional energy assessors to some sites and comparing the data obtained from the survey to the data collected by the assessors. Results from the energy assessment data collection have largely confirmed the quality of data gathered by CBECS interviewers.

Dec 10, 2015
The U.S. Energy Information Administration's State Heating Oil and Propane Program (SHOPP) collects state-level residential heating oil and propane price data in 38 states during the winter heating season. SHOPP is a joint effort between EIA and state energy offices in regions (especially states in the Northeast and Midwest) where heating oil and propane are commonly used as heating fuels. In all of the states surveyed, propane and heating oil prices are lower than they were at this time last year, and EIA expects prices will remain at lower levels throughout the winter.

New legislation affects U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve

Dec 9, 2015
Two recently enacted laws authorize significant sales of crude oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) over the next decade. The Bipartisan Budget Act authorizes the sale of 58 million barrels of SPR oil between FY 2018-2025 for deficit reduction purposes and an estimated 40-50 million barrels of oil in FY 2017-2020 for SPR modernization. The Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act authorizes the sale of 66 million barrels of oil in FY 2023-25 to help support the Highway Trust Fund.
