Monthly Energy Review July 2013
Summary data on energy production, consumption, stocks, trade, prices, and emissions
The July 2013 Monthly Energy Review (MER), EIA's primary report of recent energy statistics, was released on July 26, 2013. Preliminary estimates indicate that for April 2013:
- U.S. net imports of energy totaled 1.1 quadrillion Btu, a 5-percent decrease from the April 2012 level.
- U.S. primary energy imports totaled 2.0 quadrillion Btu, a 6-percent decrease from the April 2012 level. Crude oil made up 68 percent of primary energy imports, petroleum products 19 percent, and natural gas 11 percent.
- U.S. primary energy exports totaled 0.9 quadrillion Btu, an 8-percent decrease from the April 2012 level. Petroleum products made up 55 percent of primary energy exports, coal 27 percent, natural gas 14 percent, and crude oil 2 percent.
During 2013, EIA will expand the MER to incorporate annual data as far back as 1949 in those data tables that are currently published in both the Annual Energy Review (AER) and the MER. This month, data for years prior to 1973 are incorporated into Natural Gas, Crude Oil and Natural Gas Resource Development, and Coal.
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. See What’s New in the MER for a record of changes.
