MONTHLY ENERGY REVIEW OCTOBER 2010 RELEASE - October 28, 2010

Summary data on energy production, consumption, stocks, trade, and prices

The October 2010 Monthly Energy Review (MER), EIA's primary report of recent energy statistics, was released on October 28, 2010. Preliminary data indicate the following changes in the first 7 months of 2010 compared with the first 7 months of 2009:

·            U.S. primary energy consumption rose by 3%.  The three largest absolute increases in fuel consumption were in coal, natural gas and biomass.  Total energy consumed by the industrial sector increased by 8%, the largest change registered in any end-use sector.

·            U.S. primary energy imports decreased by 1%, due primarily to a decrease in the imports of petroleum products; U.S. primary energy exports increased by 18%, due primarily to an increase in coal and petroleum product exports.

·            Electricity retail sales in the residential sector increased by 7%.

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.
