The Information Source for Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles

The Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) provides information, data, and tools to help fleets, fuel providers, policymakers, cities, states, Clean Cities coalitions, and other transportation decision makers find ways to reach their energy, environmental, and economic goals through the use of alternative and renewable fuels, advanced vehicles, and other fuel-saving strategies.

The transportation sector accounts for approximately 30% of total U.S. energy needs and 70% of U.S. petroleum consumption. The United States became a net exporter of petroleum in 2020 with exports surpassing imports, although imports of 8.33 million barrels per day in 2022 remained an important part of balancing supply and demand for domestic and international markets.
