1Natural gas, plus a small amount of supplemental gaseous fuels. 6"Other" is chilled water, renewable energy, and other fuels reported as used in facilities.
2Distillate fuel oil and residual fuel oil. R=Revised.  P=Preliminary. 
3Liquefied petroleum gases. Notes:  -  For 1975 and 1976, the U.S. Government's fiscal year was July 1 through June 30.  Beginning
in 1977, the U.S. Government's fiscal year is October 1 through September 30 (for example, fiscal year
2011 is October 2010 through September 2011).  -  Data in this table are developed using the following
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.
4Other types of fuel used in vehicles and equipment, primarily alternative fuels like methanol, ethanol,
compressed natural gas, and biodiesel.
