STATE ENERGY DATA RELEASE—December 16, 2011
State-level estimates of motor gasoline and aviation gasoline consumption, prices, and expenditures and fuel ethanol consumption through 2010
State-level estimates of motor gasoline and aviation gasoline consumption, prices, and expenditures and fuel ethanol consumption for data year 2010 are available at SEDS Updates. Motor gasoline data refer to gasoline as it is consumed, with fuel ethanol included. Consumption estimates for fuel ethanol are also shown separately to facilitate fossil fuel and renewable energy analysis. Data highlights include the following:
- U.S. consumption of motor gasoline including fuel ethanol totaled 17 quadrillion Btu in 2010, which was virtually unchanged from 2009. The top consuming States were California, Texas, and Florida.
- U.S. consumption of fuel ethanol in 2010 equaled 1 quadrillion Btu, or approximately 6 percent of gasoline consumed.
- Prices of motor gasoline including fuel ethanol averaged $21.98 per million Btu in the United States in 2010, a 19 percent increase from 2009. In the lower 48 States, prices were highest in Washington, California, and Oregon, and lowest in Georgia, South Carolina, and Missouri. Price data for motor gasoline includes Federal and State motor fuel taxes, but not local fuel taxes and State/local sales taxes.
- U.S. consumption of aviation gasoline in 2010 was 27 trillion Btu, a 2 percent increase from 2009. The price of aviation gasoline in the U.S. averaged $25.19, a 24 percent increase from 2009.
The State Energy Data System (SEDS) provides annual State-level estimates of energy consumption, prices, and expenditures by sector and energy source. A full set of State-level estimates for all fuels, all sectors, and all years through data year 2010 will be released by the end of June 2012.
