From the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Energy Explained, Crude and Petroleum Products:

“Crude oil and other liquids produced from fossil fuels are refined into petroleum products that people use for many different purposes. Biofuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, are also used as petroleum products, mainly in mixtures with gasoline and diesel fuel.

“Petroleum is the largest U.S. energy source. We use petroleum products to propel vehicles, to heat buildings and to produce electricity. In the industrial sector, the petrochemical industry uses petroleum as a raw material (a feedstock) to make products such as plastics, polyurethane, solvents and hundreds of other intermediate and end-user goods.

“In 2017, U.S. petroleum consumption averaged about 19.96 million barrels per day (b/d), which included about 1 million b/d of biofuels.

“U.S. petroleum consumption by sector and share of total in 2017

  • Transportation—14.02 million barrels per day (b/d)—71%
  • Industrial—4.76 million b/d—24%
  • Residential—0.52 million b/d—3%
  • Commercial—0.47 million b/d—2%
  • Electric power—0.10 million b/d—1%”
