    • Abstract:
      This report presents statistics that characterize transportation activities and data on other factors that affect transportation energy use. The 12 chapters of the 19th edition of the Data Book focus on various aspects of the transportation industry: petroleum, energy, greenhouse gas emissions, criteria pollutant emissions, transportation and the economy, highway vehicles, light vehicles, heavy vehicles, alternative fuel vehicles, fleet vehicles, household vehicles, and nonhighway models. The book includes over 200 pages of tables and figures, presenting a comprehensive set of statistics on transportation energy use and the factors that affect it. Results reveal that the United States is responsible for more than one-quarter of the world's petroleum consumption. Net imports of crude oil and petroleum products in 1998 accounted for 51% of U.S. petroleum consumption. Most of the petroleum consumed in the United States was in the transportation sector (66%). This accounted for 28% of total energy use in 1998. Fuels used in the transportation sector include gasoline, distillate fuel oil (diesel fuel), jet fuel, residual fuel oil, natural gas, electricity, and methanol. Gasoline accounted for most of the transportation energy consumption in 1998. Of total transportation energy use in 1997, 76% was consumed by the highway mode, while the nonhighway transportation modes (water, air, pipeline, and rail) accounted for 21%. The remaining 3% of transportation energy use was consumed by the off-highway mode.
