A new report published by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory indicates the nation's overall energy consumption dropped in 2009. The chart above (full size here) shows the energy flow to various sectors for each fuel source. When examining the transportation sector, it is evident petroleum still dominates the sector and much of the fuel is "rejected" as the result of energy lost during internal combustion.
Furthermore, only 3% of the natural gas usage nationwide is dedicated to transportation, while 72% of all petroleum supplies are used in the sector. Additionally, despite the increased interest in CNG fueling, petroleum still accounts for 94% of all transportation-related fuel consumption. As the simplified chart below demonstrates (full size here), though domestically produced natural gas is playing a large role in transportation today than in previous decades, there is still ample room for growth.
