Energy Facts 1988.
Energy Information Administration (DOE), Washington, DC.
This booklet is a compilation of energy data providing a reference to a much broader range of domestic and international energy data. It is designed especially as a quick reference to major facts about energy. The data includes information for 1976 through 1988, except for international energy data, which is for 1977 through 1987. Graphs, charts, and illustrations portray trends, shares and locations of various energy sources and uses. The energy data have been selected from several Energy Information Administration publications. It is noted that although demand for all major categories of petroleum products increased in 1988 over the 1987 level, domestic crude oil production was down for the third consecutive year. Weak oil prices and low drilling activity were the two factors most responsible for the decline in production. All other major forms of energy, except hydroelectricity, increased production while a favorable economy and adverse weather conditions boosted United States energy consumption to a new high. Provides a glossary of energy terms, an energy conversion chart, and a listing of federal agencies for energy information assistance. (MVL)
