R=Revised.  P=Preliminary.  (s)=Less than 0.0005 and greater than -0.0005 quadrillion Btu.
3Net imports equal imports minus exports.  A minus sign indicates exports are greater than imports. Notes:  -  See "Primary Energy Consumption" in Glossary.  -  See Table E1 for estimated energy
consumption for 1635-1945.  -  See Note 3, "Electricity Imports and Exports," at end of Section 8.  -  Totals
may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding.
