More than half the price of gasoline or diesel is from buying the crude oil, and the rest is split between refining, distribution and marketing, and taxes, according to 2011 statistics compiled by the Energy Information Administration. Subbituminous Coal: A coal whose properties range from those of lignite to those of bituminous coal and used primarily as fuel for steam-electric power generation. For example, in the Austin Chalk reservoir of Texas’ Giddings Field, under equal pressure conditions, horizontal completions of 500 to 2,200 foot HD produce at initial rates 2½ to 7 times higher than vertical completions.7 Chairman Robert Hauptfuhrer of Oryx Energy Co. noted that “Our costs in the [Austin] chalk now are 50 percent more than a vertical well, but we have three to five or more times the daily production and reserves than a vertical well.”8 A faster producing rate translates financially to a higher rate of return on the horizontal project than would be achieved by a vertical project.

The energy stored in the fossil fuels originally came from sunlight. Burning petroleum emits about three-fourths as much CO2 as burning coal, and thanks to oil’s role as the established fuel for transportation globally, it’s neck-and-neck with coal in the race to become the leading greenhouse gas producer. A device that stores energy is sometimes called an accumulator. The MSHA report stated "Consol failed to adequately support a section of a rock wall that fell on miner Jesse Adkins at its Loveridge No. 22 mine July 29.

From 1990 to 2011, natural gas-fired plants accounted for 77 percent of all generating capacity additions, and many of the plants added were very efficient combined-cycle plants. The sounds they produce are typically foreign to the rural settings where wind turbines are most often used, but as turbine technology has improved over the years, the amount of sound has fallen considerably. However, we estimate 10 billion t-km took place annually from 2004 to 2009 for reasons other than the blend wall.
