Forms of Energy and How The Are Used in the USA

Source: The Economist
The figure above is from a Special Report on Energy and Technology in the current issue of The Economist.

The figure suggests that the USA is heavily dependent on fossil fuels -- oil, natural gas and coal. Fortunately, U.S. energy consumption is little increased since 1990, and has actually decreased since 2000. However, it is estimated that we still waste more than half of the energy we burn!
