MONTHLY ENERGY REVIEW NOVEMBER 2010 RELEASE - November 24, 2010
Summary data on energy production, consumption, stocks, trade, and prices
The November 2010 Monthly Energy Review (MER), EIA's primary report of recent energy statistics, was released on November 24, 2010. Preliminary data indicate the following changes in the first 8 months of 2010 compared with the first 8 months of 2009:
· U.S. primary energy consumption rose by 4%, due primarily to increases in the consumption of coal and natural gas. The largest increases in end-use sector energy consumption were registered by the industrial sector, where consumption rose 8%, and the residential sector, where consumption rose 4%.
· U.S. primary energy imports decreased by less than 1%. U.S. primary energy exports increased by 18%, due primarily to an increase in coal and petroleum product exports.
· Carbon dioxide emissions from energy consumption rose by 4%, due primarily to an increase in the consumption of coal and natural gas.
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.
