The Regional Data Book is a companion to the "Transportation Energy Conservation Data Book" that provides data at the national level. This book seeks to highlight regional differences in characteristics affecting transportation energy conservation in the U.S. The basic energy use data are presented in 5 modal chapters: highway, air, rail, marine, and pipeline. Each chapter contains information on stock of vehicles/vessels, transport networks, vehicle/vessel use, fuel use, and related data presented at 3 levels of disaggregation; SMSAs, states, and 10 federal regions. Chapter 4, "Regional Characteristics of Marine Transportation", includes the following data: employment in marine transportation and related activities, 1975; U.S. ports and waterways handling over 10,000,000 tons, 1976; sales of distillate and residual-type fuel oils for vessel bunkering, 1976; transportation of energy in foreign and domestic waterborne commerce by traffic and fuel type, 1976; imports of crude oil and petroleum products by port of delivery and region of origin; and marine use of private and commercial nonhighway gasoline, 1976. There are also, in Chapter 8, tables of international transportation energy comparisons.
