Sources: Transportation Energy Data Book: Edition 26 and projections from the Annual Energy Outlook 2007.
Notes: • The sharp increase in values between 2005 and 2006 are the result of the data change from historical to projected values. • Petroleum production includes crude oil, natural gas plant liquids, refinery gains, and other inputs, which include liquids from gas, liquids from coal, and alcohols, ethers, petroleum product stock withdrawals, domestic sources of blending components, other hydrocarbons, and natural gas converted to liquid fuel.


Effect of Automotive Lightweighting
• 6-8% (with mass compounding) increase in fuel

economy for every 10% drop in weight, everything else the same

• Offset the increased weight and cost per unit of power of alternative powertrains (hybrids, fuel cells) with respect to conventional powertrains
