conversion factors (which in most cases are different from those in Tables A1-A6)-coal: 24.580 million
Btu/short ton; natural gas: 1,031 Btu/cubic foot; aviation gasoline: 5.250 million Btu/barrel; fuel oil: 5.8254
million Btu/barrel; jet fuel: 5.460 million Btu/barrel; liquefied petroleum gases: 4.011 million Btu/barrel;
motor gasoline: 5.250 million Btu/barrel; electricity: 3,412 Btu/kilowatthour; and purchased steam: 1,000
Btu/pound.  -  Data include energy consumed at foreign installations and in foreign operations, including
aviation and ocean bunkering, primarily by the U.S. Department of Defense.  U.S. Government energy use
for electricity generation and uranium enrichment is excluded.  -  Totals may not equal sum of components
due to independent rounding.
