In 2019, annual gasoline consumption was 6.6 percent higher than in 2018 as shown in the data table below.
In Figure 1, it can be seen that monthly consumption in 2019 starting increasing in February and continued through July. Consumption then declined but continued above the five–year average, above last year's consumption, and in the upper boundary of the five–year range through the rest of the year.
The reports on ethanol–blended fuel consumption, the total of motor gasoline consumption and ethanol–blended fuel consumption, and reported miles traveled during the driving season have additional information in relation to motor gasoline consumption.
Note: The motor gasoline data in this report includes the three grades of gasoline (regular unleaded, midgrade, and premium) but does not include the gallons of gasoline blended with ethanol.
