NOTES: Consumption based on reports from state motor fuel tax agencies. Gasohol is included with gasoline. Public use and nonhighway use were estimated by the Federal Highway Administration. Estimates may not be comparable to data for prior years due to revised estimation procedures.The term motor fuel applies to gasoline and all other fuels, including special fuels, coming under the purview of the state motor-fuel tax laws. Special fuels include diesel fuel and, to the extent they can be quantified, liquefied petroleum gases such as propane. Gasohol, a blend of gasoline and fuel alcohol, is included with gasoline.
