Does EIA publish energy consumption and price data for cities, counties, or by zip code?
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) does not publish data according to zip code. EIA publishes gasoline price data for some cities, and it publishes data for electric and natural gas distribution utilities. EIA’s data includes
- Gasoline prices, including taxes, for 10 cities.
- Electricity retail sales (a proxy for end-use consumption) and retail prices of electricity distribution utilities. Most cities or municipal areas are served by a single distribution utility. However, many distribution utilities serve a larger area than the jurisdictional boundaries of individual cities. The names of the counties, by state, where each electric utility has distribution equipment, which can be used as an estimate of a utility's service territory, are in the Service Territory file of the EIA 861 survey database. In some cases, more than one utility may have distribution equipment in the same county. EIA’s interactive U.S. Energy Atlas has an electricity map application and a data catalog, with a layer for administrative areas including county boundaries and electric (utility) retail service territories.
- Natural gas delivery/sales volumes and prices for natural gas distribution utilities. EIA does not publish information on the service territory of natural gas utilities.
