information.
R=Revised.  P=Preliminary.  - - =Not applicable.  
2Includes still gas not burned as refinery fuel. Notes:  -  Estimates of consumption for non-combustion use shown in this table are included in total
energy consumption (see Table 1.3).  -  See Note 2, "Non-Combustion Use of Fossil Fuels," at end of
section.  -  Because of changes in methodology, data series may be revised annually.  -  Estimates of
non-combustion use in this table are considered industrial uses with the exception of approximately half of
the lubricants which are considered transportation use.  -  Totals may not equal sum of components due to
independent rounding.

4U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has altered the methodology for the natural gas
estimates.  The estimates are linearly interpolated between Manufacturing Energy Consumption Survey
(MECS) years and held constant until data are available for the most recent MECS year.
