American energy consumption since 1776.......AN IMPORTANT GRAPHIC!

American energy consumption since 1776

US consumers and businesses burn through a huge amount of energy resources.

And over the last 239 years there have some changes in the types of energies consumed: wood is no longer in vogue, while clean energies like solar and nuclear are making waves.

However, three fossil fuels — petroleum, natural gas, and coal — are America's energy stalwarts. This trio has made up at least 80% of total US energy consumption for more than 100 years, according to this chart shared by the US Energy Information Administration.

And it doesn't look like they're going anywhere anytime soon.

LOOK HOW THEY HAVE FLAT LINED. THEN THINK ABOUT OUR FAILING ECONOMY, MAYBE A LIGHT BULB WILL GO ON. THEY WERE ONCE CHEAP AND READILY AVAILABLE, NOW THEY ARE MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE AND HARDER TO FIND!
