US State Energy Data Release—January 22, 2021

State-level estimates of motor gasoline and aviation gasoline consumption, prices, and expenditures and fuel ethanol consumption through 2019

EIA calculates estimates for motor gasoline based on the way it is sold, with fuel ethanol included. EIA compiles fuel ethanol consumption estimates separately to provide data by primary energy source. Because of differences in data sources and estimation methods, the ratio of fuel ethanol consumption to motor gasoline consumption should not be interpreted as the average ethanol blend rate.

Data highlights for 2019 include

  • U.S. consumption of motor gasoline totaled 17 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu), which was virtually unchanged from 2018. The top consuming states were California and Texas (1.8 quadrillion Btu each) and Florida (1.1 quadrillion Btu).
  • Prices of motor gasoline averaged $21.61 per million Btu in the United States, a 4% decrease from 2018. Prices ranged from $18.82 per million Btu in Georgia to $31.20 per million Btu in Hawaii. Price estimates for motor gasoline include federal and state motor fuel taxes, but they do not include local fuel taxes or state and local sales taxes.
  • U.S. consumption of aviation gasoline was 23 trillion Btu, a 4% increase from 2018. The price of aviation gasoline in the United States averaged $25.57 per million Btu, a 5% decrease from 2018.
  • U.S. consumption of fuel ethanol equaled 1.2 quadrillion Btu, a 1% increase from 2018.
  • EIA incorporated the latest 2019 estimates and data revisions into the time-series data files in the Data Files section on the SEDS Updates page.

SEDS provides annual state-level estimates of energy production, consumption, prices, and expenditures by sector and energy source. The full set of 2019 SEDS reports will be released at the end of June 2021.
