Statistical Release Page

The latest national statistics Road Transport Fuels Consumption at Local Authority Level, produced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, were released on 25th June 2009 according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.

The Road Transport Fuels release includes statistics on consumption of petrol and diesel by buses, cars, motorcycles, HGVs, and LGVs in the local authorities of the United Kingdom during 2007. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 26th June 2008. The data are modelled for DECC by AEA Energy and Environment, and rely on a number of National Statistics series including UK energy and emissions data from DECC and transport data from DfT. Following revisions to the modelling methodology, there have been major revisions to both the 2005 and 2006 datasets, which are included in this release; a separate methodology note has been produced to explain the reasons for the revisions.
