1 Based on reports from state motor-fuel tax agencies. Gasohol is included with gasoline. Public use and nonhighway use were estimated by the Federal Highway Administration.

2 Rhode Island data are for 2002.

3 U.S. totals do not include Alaska.

KEY: U = data are unavailable.

NOTE: The term "motor fuel" applies to gasoline and all other fuels, including special fuels, coming under the purview of the state motor-fuel tax laws. "Special fuels" include diesel fuel and, to the extent they can be quantified, liquefied petroleum gases such as propane. Gasohol, a blend of gasoline and fuel alcohol, is included with gasoline.
