The Energy Information Administration (EIA), created by Congress in 1977, is a statistical agency of the U.S. Department of Energy. They provide policy-independent data, forecasts, and analyses to promote sound policy making, efficient markets, and public understanding regarding energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment. This is the EIA web site. It provides access to reports on energy related issues like greenhouse gasses, global warming, finance, renewable fuels, and legislation. Energy data is available by region, state, fuel type, consumer sector, or price. There is also a kid's section of the web site that provides access to some educational materials about energy.
