2 Transportation Energy Data Book Quick Facts Petroleum The U.S. produces 10 million barrels of petroleum per day (M bpd), or 12% of the world s 85.35M bpd. The U.S. consumes 18.6 M bpd, or 21% of the world s 88.3 M bpd. U.S. transportation petroleum use is 67% of total U.S. petroleum use. U.S. transportation petroleum use is 126% of total U.S. petroleum production. Petroleum comprises 92% of U.S. transportation energy use. Cars and light trucks account for 63% of U.S. transportation petroleum use. Medium trucks (Class 3-6) account for 4% of U.S. transportation petroleum use. Heavy trucks (Class 7-8) account for 17% of U.S. transportation petroleum use. Energy U.S. transportation energy use accounts for 28% of total U.S. energy use. In 2011, 98% of ethanol consumed in the U.S. is consumed as ethanol in gasohol (E10). Cars and light trucks account for 59% of U.S. transportation energy use. Medium trucks account for 5% of U.S. transportation energy use. Heavy trucks account for 17% of U.S. transportation energy use. Light Vehicle Characteristics There are 111,290 cars and 120,847 light trucks in the U.S. (232,137 total light vehicles). U.S. cars: o 7,586,000 cars were sold in o The average age of a U.S. car is 11.4 years; the average car lifetime is 16.9 years. o The average fuel economy for the U.S. car fleet (all cars on the road today) is 24.9 mpg. o Cars comprise 50% of new light vehicle sales. U.S. light trucks: o 7,693,000 light trucks were sold in o The average age of a U.S. light truck is 11.3 years; the average light truck lifetime is 15.5 years. o The average fuel economy for the U.S. light truck fleet (all light trucks on the road today) is 18.5 mpg. o Light trucks comprise 50% of new light vehicle sales. There were 8,716,720 fleet vehicles in 2013: 4,438,330 cars and 4,278,390 trucks. U.S. car registrations account for 16% of total world car registrations. U.S. truck and bus registrations account for 38% of total world truck and bus registrations. The average U.S. household vehicle travels 11,300 miles per year (2009 NHTS). Heavy Truck Characteristics 10,659,000 heavy trucks were registered in the U.S. in In 2002 (the last time a survey was conducted), heavy trucks accounted for 80% of medium and heavy truck fuel use.

21 xix FOREWORD Welcome to this 33rd edition of the Transportation Energy Data Book. Twenty-four editions of this Data Book have been produced by Stacy Davis; DOE is grateful for the dedication, consistency, and skill she has brought to this effort. I would like to bring to your attention some of the data that are new in this edition: Tables 3.8 and 3.9 have 2013 data on the cars and trucks in operation by age. Tables have been changed significantly due to changes in the source data. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) changed the vehicle classifications, combining wagons with the rest of the cars and dropping the small, medium, large categories of cars, pickups, sportutilities, and vans. The fuel economy displayed in those tables has been adjusted by the EPA to provide the best estimate of real-world performance. Figure 5.1, which is the distribution of trucks over 26,000 lbs. by vehicle-miles traveled, now includes a graph on all trucks in additional to the <2-year old trucks. Tables show data from the newly released 2012 Commodity Flow Survey (CFS) in comparison with previous CFS data. Tables 6.3 and 6.4 were split from one table in last year s edition because there are so many alternative fuel vehicles in model year Table 6.7 names the model year 2014 electric-drive medium/heavy trucks and buses. Figure 6.2 shows the top ten natural gas-producing countries, along with the natural gas reserves of those countries. Figure 11.2 displays data on greenhouse gas emissions from the latest GREET model. Tables and present information on the Tier 3 emission standards which were finalized in April I hope you find value in this data book. Stacy and I welcome suggestions on how to improve it. Jacob W. Ward Analysis Manager, Vehicle Technologies Office U.S. Department of Energy

23 xxi ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to express their gratitude to the many individuals who assisted in the preparation of this document. First, we would like to thank Jacob Ward and the Vehicle Technologies Office staff for their continued support of the Transportation Energy Data Book project. We would also like to thank Mark Robbins for the cover. This book would not have been possible without the dedication of Debbie Bain, who has masterfully prepared the manuscript since This book would not be possible without the leadership, guidance, and vision of Phil Patterson, who began this book in the 1970 s. We hope to continue this report into the future with the same level of excellence. The authors and the transportation research community will be forever grateful for his efforts.

25 xxiii ABSTRACT The Transportation Energy Data Book: Edition 33 is a statistical compendium prepared and published by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Vehicle Technologies Office. Designed for use as a desk-top reference, the Data Book represents an assembly and display of statistics and information that characterize transportation activity, and presents data on other factors that influence transportation energy use. The purpose of this document is to present relevant statistical data in the form of tables and graphs. The latest edition of the Data Book is available to a larger audience via the Internet (cta.ornl.gov/data). This edition of the Data Book has 12 chapters which focus on various aspects of the transportation industry. Chapter 1 focuses on petroleum; Chapter 2 energy; Chapter 3 highway vehicles; Chapter 4 light vehicles; Chapter 5 heavy vehicles; Chapter 6 alternative fuel vehicles; Chapter 7 fleet vehicles; Chapter 8 household vehicles; Chapter 9 nonhighway modes; Chapter 10 transportation and the economy; Chapter 11 greenhouse gas emissions; and Chapter 12 criteria pollutant emissions. The sources used represent the latest available data. There are also three appendices which include detailed source information for some tables, measures of conversion, and the definition of Census divisions and regions. A glossary of terms and a title index are also included for the reader s convenience.
