NOTES: Details may not add to total due to rounding. To eliminate the effects of inflation over time, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) converted current dollars to chained 2005 dollars. BTS used the Price Index for Government Consumption Expenditures and Gross Investment as the price deflator. The price index figures were obtained from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, available at http://www.bea.gov/national/nipaweb/SelectTable.asp?Selected=N#S3. Previous editions of this table used chained 2000 dollars, so this table is not comparable to previous editions.To avoid double counting, federal expenditures exclude grants to state and local governments. Local government outlays for highway are not included in 2007.
