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.
hIncurred 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.
bBeginning in 2009, includes biodiesel blended into distillate fuel oil. – – = Not applicable.
cHydrocarbon gas liquids, assumed to be propane only. Where shown, R = Revised data and (s) = Physical unit value less than 0.5 or Btu value less than 0.05.
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 "Industrial sector, Other Petroleum."
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
