aNatural gas as it is consumed; includes supplemental gaseous fuels that are commingled with natural gas. gIncludes denaturant. Because of differences in data sources and estimation methods, the ratio of fuel ethanol
consumption and motor gasoline consumption should not be interpreted as the average ethanol blend rate.
bHydrocarbon gas liquids, include natural gas liquids and refinery olefins. NA = Not available.
cThrough 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, R = Revised data and (s) = Value less than 0.5.
dBeginning in 1993, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor gasoline. Notes: Totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding. · The continuity of these data series
estimates may be affected by changing data sources and estimation methodologies. See the Technical Notes for each type
of energy.
eIncludes asphalt and road oil, aviation gasoline, kerosene, lubricants, petroleum coke, and the “other petroleum products”
category. See Technical Notes, Section 4.
Web Page: All data are available at https://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.php.
fConventional hydroelectric power. For 1960 through 1989, includes pumped-storage hydroelectricity, which cannot be
separately identified.
Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
