Driving Less

Not a graph, but here are the <A href="http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/dnav/pet/hist/kd0vrsnus1a.htm">residential distillate annual consumption statistics</A>

Notice the general decline in use as [presumably] fewer homes are heated with oil.

Gigantic drop in 2006 would [seem] to come from a number of factors: calendar year 2006 was quite warm in the NE US with fuel oil prices climbing and continued--perhaps accelerating--fuel changeover (mainly to natural gas).

Fuel oil for residential use is about 15% of total distillate consumption with most being used for transportation.

    I would

    I'd like to see this graph in another 12 months.

    Another neat graph would be the number of gallons of #2 heating oil consumed in each calendar year.
