The prices of gasoline, coal, renewables and other fuels change rapidly, and are critical data points for citizens and industry professionals alike.  Business people and consumers are often best equipped to make decisions if they have current price trend information.

The Department of Energy’s sub-agency, the Energy Information Administration (EIA), collects and disseminates energy data on a daily basis so that anyone interested can get the information they need.
