Are the prices that EIA publishes adjusted for inflation?

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) publishes nominal prices (prices that are not adjusted for changes in the value of the U.S. dollar or inflation), unless stated otherwise. Prices that are adjusted for changes in the value of the U.S. dollar are identified as real prices.
