NOTES

Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.

These data include energy consumed at foreign installations and in foreign operations, including aviation and ocean bunkering, primarily by the U.S. Department of Defense. U.S. government energy use for electricity generation and uranium enrichment is excluded. Other energy used by U.S. agencies that produce electricity or enriched uranium is included. The U.S. government's fiscal year runs from October 1 through September 30.

Data in this table are prepared using the following conversion factors - electricity: 3,412 Btu/kilowatt-hour; purchased steam: 1,000 Btu/pound; coal: 24.580 million Btu/short ton; natural gas: 1,031 Btu/cubic foot; aviation gasoline: 5.250 million Btu/barrel; fuel oil: 5.8254 million Btu/barrel; Jet fuel: 5.460 million Btu/barrel; liquefied petroleum gas: 4.011 million Btu/barrel, and motor gasoline: 5.250 million Btu/barrel.
