5Natural gas, plus a small amount of supplemental gaseous fuels. Notes:  -  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.
