b Includes state, county, and municipal use, industrial and commercial use, construction use, and miscellaneous.

NOTES: All nonhighway uses of gasoline were estimated by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration.

These estimates may not be comparable to data for prior years due to revised estimation procedures.

Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.

Numbers may differ slightly from previous year's metric tables because a higher precision conversion factor was used.
