5Petroleum coke is converted from short tons to barrels by multiplying by 5. Notes:  -  Estimates are for fuels consumed to produce useful thermal output; they exclude fuels
consumed to produce electricity.  -  Estimates do not include electric utility combined-heat-and-power
(CHP) plants.  -  See Note 1, "Coverage of Electricity Statistics," at end of section.  -  See "Useful Thermal
Output" in Glossary.  -  Totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding.
