Are prices published by EIA adjusted for inflation?

Unless otherwise indicated, the prices published on the website of the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) are nominal prices or prices that have not been adjusted to remove the effect of changes in the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar. Prices that are adjusted for changes in the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar are identified as real prices.
