(a)Plant fuel data and lease fuel data are collected only annually.
Monthly lease and plant fuel use is estimated from monthly marketed
production by assuming that the preceding annual percentage remains
constant for the next twelve months.

(b)Pipeline fuel use is collected only on an annual basis. Monthly
pipeline fuel data are estimated from monthly total consumption
(excluding pipeline fuel) by assuming that the preceding annual
percentage remains constant for the next twelve months.

(c)Vehicle fuel is included in the annual total of deliveries to
commercial consumers for 1996-2000 but not in the monthly volumes.
Volumes delivered for use as vehicle fuel (in billion cubic feet) were
2.9 in 1996, 4.4 in 1997, 5.1 in 1998, 5.7 in 1999, and 8.3 in 2000.

(d)Year-to-date volume represents months for which volume information is
available in the current year.

(R)Revised Data.

(E)Estimated Data.

(RE)Revised Estimated Data.

NA Not Available.

Notes: Data for 1996 through 2000 are final. All other data are
preliminary unless otherwise indicated. Estimates for the most recent
three months are derived from the Short-Term Integrated Forecasting
System (STIFS). Geographic coverage is the 50 States and the District of
Columbia. Totals may not equal sum of components because of independent
rounding. Beginning in 1996, consumption of natural gas for agricultural
use was classified as industrial use. See Explanatory Note 5 for further
explanation.
