The ability to customize trends is an excellent option when showing historical trends of energy generating sources. The only thing that would make it easier is if this data could be represented in percentage form as well. Students tend to grasp percentage changes faster than actual kW-hr unit changes.

Looks great; glad to see this in progress. I'd suggest reworking the sources and notes links beneath each graph, as these seem like a holdover from the printed version. It doesn't seem necessary to show the static charts and data again in that resource.

I work on energy policy issues and use EIA data on a near-daily basis. The new interactive tools being beta tested are amazing ideas and tremendously helpful. One common metric I look at is the percentage values. The Beta tested tools currently show, for example, primary energy consumption by source in Quads. This is great, but if I could see multiple sources plotted as percentages of total supply (simultaneously with absolute value of BTU consumed, if at all possible)this would be an invaluable improvement. Thank you for the new tool; it looks and functions great!

Great layout, love the sliders and ability to update things quickly. Very helpful for examining trade trends. Would be extremely useful if you could provide more regional granularity (e.g. distillate stocks by PADD by month).

Thank you for the new additions to the site! I pull data from EIA regularly and the ability to change categories and isolate data for my own extrapolation is excellent. It will potentially be an excellent tool for teachers and students too! Please note a typo in the following statement: Please see Chapter 1 of the Monthly Energy Review for sources, notes, and methology.
Thanks and corrected.
