NOTES: Federal transportation expenditures consist of outlays of the federal government including not only direct spending but also grants made to state and local governments. To avoid double counting, state and local transportation expenditures include their outlays from all sources of funds except federal grants received. State and local data are reported together, because disaggregated federal grants data are not available. Pipeline data only include federal-level expenditures, as state and local data are not available.

Current dollars were converted to chained 2000 dollars by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics to eliminate the effects of inflation over time. Current dollars in fiscal year 2000 are equal to the chained 2000 dollars shown.
