State Energy Data Release —June 1, 2012
State-level estimates for total energy for data year 2010 and revisions for previous years are available at SEDS Updates. Total energy consumption estimates published in 2012 should not be compared with estimates published in earlier years due to changes in the estimating methodology. See Data and Methodology Changes for more information.
Data highlights include the following:
- U.S. total energy consumption rose to 98 quadrillion Btu in 2010, a 3-percent increase from 2009. The top consuming States were Texas, which consumed 12 percent of U.S. total energy, California, which consumed 8 percent, and Florida, which consumed 4 percent.
- The U.S. average price of total energy was $19 per million Btu in 2010, a 10-percent increase from 2009. Prices ranged from $12 per million Btu in the industrial sector to $22 per million Btu in the residential sector. Transportation sector energy prices increased 20 percent from 2009 to 2010, industrial sector energy prices increased 9 percent, residential sector energy prices increased 2 percent, and commercial sector energy prices increased 1 percent.
- U.S. total energy expenditures rose to $1.2 trillion in 2010, a 14-percent increase from 2009. The States with the largest expenditures were Texas, which accounted for 11 percent of U.S. energy expenditures, California, which accounted for 10 percent, and New York and Florida, which each accounted for 5 percent.
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.
