aTransportation use of natural gas is gas consumed in the operation of pipelines, primarily in compressors, and,
since 1990, natural gas consumed as vehicle fuel.
hIncurred in the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity plus plant use and unaccounted for
electrical system energy losses. Pre-1990 estimates are not comparable to those for later years. See Section 6 of
Technical Notes for an explanation of changes in methodology.
bThrough 2004, includes kerosene-type and naphtha-type jet fuel. Beginning in 2005, includes kerosene-type
jet fuel only; naphtha-type jet fuel is included in "Industrial sector, Other Petroleum."
– – = Not applicable.
cLiquefied petroleum gases, includes ethane and olefins. Where shown, R = Revised data and (s) = Physical unit value less than 0.5 or Btu value less than 0.05.
dBeginning in 1993, motor gasoline includes fuel ethanol blended into the product. Notes: Totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding. · The continuity of these data
series estimates may be affected by the changing data sources and estimation methodologies. See the Technical
Notes for each type of energy.
eBeginning in 1981, fuel ethanol is shown separately to display the use of renewable energy by the
transportation sector. It is counted only once in the total. There is also a discontinuity in this time series between
2004 and 2005 due to changes in estimation methodology. See Section 5 of the Technical Notes.
Web Page: All data are available at http://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.cfm.
fThere is a discontinuity in this time series between 1980 and 1981 due to the expanded coverage of
renewable energy sources beginning in 1981.
Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
gFrom 1981 through 1992, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor gasoline that is not included in the motor
gasoline column.
