New York has the second-lowest energy consumption per capita (trailing only Rhode Island) due in part to its extensive and widely used mass transportation systems.
Although New York was an important center for oil production and refining in the 19th century, today the state produces only small amounts of crude oil and has no oil refineries.
New York is among the top consuming states for petroleum products, which are mainly used for transportation and home heating.
