Petropedia explains Energy Information Administration (EIA)

The Energy Information Administration provides complete information on energy production, demand, exports, imports and prices. It is the nation’s first source to provide energy information. The information is published in web products, reports, data browsers, press releases, maps and API’s. The information is published periodically, annually, monthly, weekly and daily as requested or needed. The data, forecasts and analysis of the Energy Information Administration are independent of getting approval from any officer or employee of the U.S. Government. An integrated view over several fuels and energy uses are presented by the EIA.
