aIncludes supplemental gaseous fuels that are commingled with natural gas. iThere are no direct fuel costs for hydroelectric, geothermal, solar, or wind energy.
bBeginning in 2009, includes biodiesel blended into distillate fuel oil. jFor 1981 through 1992, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor gasoline that is not included
in the motor gasoline column.
cHydrocarbon gas liquids, include natural gas liquids and refinery olefins. Where shown, R = Revised data and (s) = Value less than 0.05 million dollars.
dThrough 2004, includes kerosene-type and naphtha-type jet fuel. Beginning in 2005, includes
kerosene-type jet fuel only; naphtha-type jet fuel is included in "Other Petroleum."
Where shown, — = No consumption, including cases where adjustments were made. See
explanation of adjustments in Section 7 of the Technical Notes.
eBeginning in 1993, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor gasoline. Notes: Price estimates are weighted averages of price estimates and expenditure estimates are
the sum of expenditure estimates for the residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation
sectors. · Expenditure totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding.
fIncludes asphalt and road oil, aviation gasoline, kerosene, lubricants, petroleum coke, and the
“other petroleum products” category. See Technical Notes, Section 4.

gWood, wood-derived fuels, and biomass waste. Prior to 2001, includes non-biomass waste. Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical
Notes.
hThere 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.
