The February 2014 Monthly Energy Review (MER), EIA's primary report of recent energy statistics, was released on February 26, 2014. Preliminary estimates indicate that for November 2013:
- The transportation sector accounted for 70 percent of total U.S. estimated petroleum consumption. Motor gasoline represented 63 percent of estimated petroleum consumption in the transportation sector, distillate fuel oil 23 percent, and jet fuel 11 percent.
- The industrial sector accounted for 26 percent of total U.S. estimated petroleum consumption.
- The residential sector accounted for 2 percent of estimated petroleum consumption, almost all of it in the form of liquefied petroleum gases and distillate fuel oil.
- The commercial and electric power sectors each accounted for 1 percent of total U.S. estimated petroleum consumption.
The MER provides monthly and annual data on total energy production, consumption, and trade; energy prices; overviews of petroleum, natural gas, coal, electricity, nuclear energy, renewable energy, and international petroleum; carbon dioxide emissions; and data unit conversions. As of September 2013, the MER includes pre-1973 historical data for approximately 70 data tables previously published in EIA’s Annual Energy Review. See What’s New in the MER for a record of changes.
