aIncludes supplemental gaseous fuels that are commingled with natural gas. hFor 1981 through 1992, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor gasoline that is not included
in the motor gasoline column.
bHydrocarbon gas liquids, assumed to be propane only. Where shown, R = Revised data and (s) = Value less than 0.05 million dollars.
cBeginning in 1993, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor gasoline. There is a discontinuity
in the expenditure series between 2014 and 2015 because of changes in consumption estimates
from the source. See Consumption Technical Notes, Section 4.
Where shown, — = No consumption, including cases where adjustments were made. See
explanation of adjustments in Section 7 of the Technical Notes.
dIncludes small amounts of petroleum coke not shown separately. Notes: Expenditure totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding. ·
The commercial sector includes commercial combined-heat-and-power (CHP) and commercial
electricity-only plants.
eWood, wood-derived fuels, and biomass waste. Prior to 2001, includes non-biomass waste. Web Page: All data are available at https://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.php.
fThere is a discontinuity in this time series between 1988 and 1989 due to the expanded
coverage of the use of wood and biomass waste beginning in 1989.
Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical
Notes.
gThere are no direct fuel costs for hydroelectric, geothermal, solar, or wind energy.
