326. DETAILED BREAKDOWN OF U.S. PETROLEUM USE
Thus far, I've only been aware of one detailed breakdown of fuel usage in the U.S. -- the DOE breakdown cited in the Hirsch report, and described in 27. WHERE DOES ALL THE OIL GO?.
However, I recently ran across a cite to another Table at the Oil Drum (unfortunately I didn't take a note of the poster's name. Hat tip in any case!) . This Table is found in a document called Ending the Oil Age: A Plan to Kick the Saudi Habit(pdf) by Charles Komanoff, and goes into considerably more detail than the Table in the Hirsch report.
Apparently the data comes from an internal DOE spreadsheet:
The spreadsheet from which we calculated Table 1 (Major Uses of Petroleum Products in the United States, 2000) and otherwise estimated the amounts and types of petroleum used in the U.S. prior to last Sept. 11 is an extensive (15 columns by 2679 rows) compilation of both oil usage and transportation energy developed by the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s Energy Information Administration for forecasting purposes. We obtained the spreadsheet from a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency staff member in December, 2001 and performed the calculations for this report during that month. While the spreadsheet itself is not available from DOE, the data in it are contained in the downloadable files listed below. Our 2000 figures are normalized (e.g., for weather) and may differ slightly from actual data. We will do our best to provide copies of the spreadsheet itself upon request.This Table is a thought-provoking resource which I wanted to post for future reference.
