aTransportation use of natural gas is gas consumed in the operation of pipelines, primarily in compressors, and,
since 1990, natural gas consumed as vehicle fuel.
gIncurred in the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity plus plant use and unaccounted for
electrical system energy losses. Pre-1990 estimates are not comparable to those for later years. See Section 6 of
Technical Notes for an explanation of changes in methodology.
bHydrocarbon gas liquids, assumed to be propane only. – – = Not applicable.
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 "Industrial sector, Other Petroleum."
Where shown, R = Revised data and (s) = Physical unit value less than 0.5 or Btu value less than 0.05.
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 the changing data sources and estimation methodologies. See the Technical
Notes for each type of energy.
eThere is a discontinuity in this time series between 1980 and 1981 due to the expanded coverage of fuel
ethanol beginning in 1981.
Web Page: All data are available at https://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.php.
fFor 1981 through 1992, includes fuel ethanol blended into motor gasoline that is not included in the motor
gasoline column.
Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
