What is it?

Consumption of energy in various categories measured in trillions of BTUs.

Who is interested?

Anyone tracking total energy use in the U.S., including a separate category for transportation.

What does it tell me?

While the numbers are large, they do provide a good overall look at total transportation and other energy uses, measured beyond things just like vehicle miles traveled. It also breaks down all usages into a BTU base.
