aBeginning in 2008, consumption data are no longer collected and are assumed to be zero. Where shown, R = Revised data, — = No consumption, and (s) = Value less than 0.05 million dollars.
bIncludes supplemental gaseous fuels that are commingled with natural gas. Note: Expenditure totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding.
cHydrocarbon gas liquids, assumed to be propane only. Web Page: All data are available at https://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.php.
dWood and wood-derived fuels. Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
eThere are no direct fuel costs for geothermal, photovoltaic, or solar thermal energy.
