Energy Sector News Related to Transportation

The energy sector and transportation industry are closely linked. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that about 28% of total U.S. energy consumption in 2021 was for the transportation of people and goods. Major energy sources used for transportation include petroleum products (such as gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel and propane), biofuels (ethanol and biomass-based distillates), natural gas and electricity. In 2021, petroleum products accounted for about 90% of U.S. transportation sector energy use, followed by biofuels (about 6%) and natural gas (about 4%). Electricity made up less than 1% of the total transportation sector energy use.
