KEY: P = preliminary; R = revised; U = data are unavailable.

a Includes crude oil and natural gas plant liquids. This data series has been revised from 1975 forward to exclude the field production of other liquids including: finished motor gasoline, motor gasoline blending components, and other hydrocarbons and oxygenates.

b Includes lease condensate.

c Includes imports for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which began in 1977.

d Beginning in 1985, motor gasoline blending components and aviation gasoline blending components are included.

e Net imports is equal to Imports minus Exports.

NOTE

Component numbers may not add to totals due to independent rounding.
