Colorado Energy Data
is an important contributor to the Nation’s energy supply. It ranks 7th among
the States in the production of natural gas, 10th in crude oil, and 12th in
coal. Not surprising, it relies primarily on petroleum, coal, and natural gas
for its own energy requirements. Colorado’s electric utilities run almost
exclusively on coal; very small amounts of hydroelectricity and natural gas
account for the rest of the power. While the average price paid for petroleum
products in the State ranks 6th in the Nation, the State’s
total energy expenditure per person is low, ranking 48th in the Nation.
