1Electricity-only and combined-heat-and-power (CHP) plants within the NAICS 22 category whose
primary business is to sell electricity, or electricity and heat, to the public.  Through 1988, data are for
electric utilities only; beginning in 1989, data are for electric utilities and independent power producers.
6Fuel oil nos. 5 and 6.  For 1949-1979, data are for steam plant use of petroleum.  For 1980-2000,
electric utility data also include a small amount of fuel oil no. 4.
2Beginning in 2009, includes renewable diesel fuel (including biodiesel) blended into distillate fuel oil. R=Revised.  P=Preliminary.  NA=Not available.  
3Through 1951, naphtha-type jet fuel is included in the products from which jet fuel was blended: in
1952, 71 percent gasoline, 17 percent kerosene, and 12 percent distillate fuel oil.   Beginning in 1952,
includes naphtha-type jet fuel.  Beginning in 1957, also includes kerosene-type jet fuel.  Beginning in 2005,
includes kerosene-type jet fuel only.
Notes:  -  Data for "Transportation Sector" are estimates.  -  For total heat content of petroleum
consumption by all sectors, see data for heat content of petroleum products supplied in Table 5.12.  For the
transportation sector, petroleum product supplied is used as an approximation of petroleum consumption.
See Note 1, "Petroleum Products Supplied and Petroleum Consumption," at end of Section.  -  Totals may
not equal sum of components due to independent rounding.
4Finished motor gasoline.  Through 1963, also includes special naphthas.  Beginning in 1993, also
includes ethanol blended into motor gasoline.

annual data.  -  See http://www.eia.gov/states/_seds.html for related information.
5Fuel oil nos. 1, 2, and 4.  For 1949-1979, data are for gas turbine and internal combustion plant use of
petroleum.  For 1980-2000, electric utility data also include small amounts of kerosene and jet fuel.
