ANALYSIS OF MARINE FUEL CONSUMPTION AND SALES

Results are presented of a compilation and analysis of available marine fuel data. An estimate of the total fuel requirements of the U.S. flag fleet is given and an analysis of marine fuel sales data is made covering sales to ships of all flags in U.S. ports. Trends of fuel consumption for the years 1970 to 1974 are given in tabular fuel--residual or distillate--and the source--domestic or bonded (foreign). The total sales of fuel in U.S. ports to ships of all flags in 1973 are shown to have been about two-thirds of the overall U.S. fleet requirements.
