Can anyone recommend a good source for statistics on petrolium consumption in the US? In particular, I’m looking for stats on average annual/daily consumption, pricing, fuel efficiency of SUVs and other consumer vehicles, and information on the distribution of oil consumed. Information on reserve oil would probably be useful too.
Basically, I’m trying to figure out how much we could reduce the need for foreign oil (or any oil, eventually) through a rigorous plan coördinating expansion of domestic oil production, tightening of fuel efficiency of consumer cars, and a significant push towards alternate fuels such as fuel cells. (When I say significant, I mean not quite on the level of the space race.)
