NOTES: To make it easier to compare data of
differing magnitudes over time, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics
divided the data for all years in each category (see table 14-7b) by the
initial year value and multiplied the result by 100.
Passenger-miles of travel (pmt) is the sum of pmt for certificated air carriers (domestic), passenger cars, motorcycles, light trucks (other 2-axle, 4-tire vehicles), buses, transit (excluding bus), and intercity/Amtrak rail. Energy consumption is the sum of usage by commercial aviation (passenger), gasoline fuel (passenger cars, light trucks, and buses), and Amtrak (which includes electricity and distillate/diesel fuels). Passenger commercial domestic aviation fuel consumption data were estimated from total commercial domestic aviation fuel consumption data. General aviation data were excluded because passenger and freight operations data cannot be disaggregated.
