The Data-Planet repository includes statistics from the State Energy Data System (SEDS), maintained and operated by the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA). The goal in maintaining SEDS is to create historical time series of energy production, consumption, prices, and expenditures by state that are defined as consistently as possible over time and across sectors. SEDS is used primarily to provide (1) state energy consumption, price, and expenditure estimates to Members of Congress, federal and state agencies, and the general public; and (2) the historical time series necessary to develop EIA’s energy models.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA), was created by Congress in 1977 and is an independent statistical and analytical agency within the United States Department of Energy. Its mission is to provide policy-independent data, forecasts, and analyses to promote sound policy making, efficient markets, and public understanding regarding energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment.
For international data on energy resources and demand, search on the broad subject classification of Energy Resources and Industries and on geography by nation.
Clink on the links below to view DataSheets comprising statistical abstracts complete with infographics of indicators relevant to energy consumption, prices, and expenditures in the US in Data-Planet Statistical Ready Reference. From the infographic, you can also enter Data-Planet Statistical Datasets to further manipulate the data and explore relationships between these statistics and other indicators in the vast Data-Planet repository. [Note that when you are logged into Statistical Ready Reference, you can also create an updated version of the DataSheet to view the latest version of the data.]
Asphalt and Road Oil - Shows a map of states by asphalt and road oil consumption in the industrial sector.
Aviation Gasoline - Shows the trend in consumption of aviation gasoline by the transportation sector in Texas.
Biomass Total - Shows the trend in biomass consumption in Vermont.
Coal - Shows coal expenditures in the industrial sector.
Electricity Exports and Imports - Shows electricity exports from the state of Washington.
Fuel Ethanol, including Denaturant - Shows the amount of fuel ethanol consumed by the transportation sector in Illinois. (Fuel ethanol is denatured [made unfit for human consumption], usually prior to transport from the ethanol production facility,)

Natural Gas - Shows the trend in the amount of natural gas consumed as pipeline fuel in Arkansas.
Nuclear Fuel - Shows a map of states by amount of electricity produced from nuclear power.
All Petroleum Products - Shows the trend in consumption of petroleum products in Florida's industrial sector. Petroleum products are obtained from the processing of crude oil, natural gas, and other hydrocarbon compounds.
Petroleum Coke - Shows the trend in total consumption of petroleum coke in Tennessee. Petroleum coke is a residue high in carbon content and low in hydrogen that is the final product of thermal decomposition in the condensation process in cracking.
Primary Energy - Shows the trend in expenditures on primary energy in Colorado. Primary energy includes many types of fuels, including coal, petroleum, natural gas, etc.
