Energy production and consumption in the North East states has been undergoing a significant shift over the past few years.

There are a number of states in the North East that are working to decrease their historic reliance on imported oil and kerosene as home heating fuels in favor of natural gas and electricity.

  • Maine
  • Vermont
  • New Hampshire
  • Massachusetts
  • Rhode Island
  • Connecticut
  • New York
  • Pennsylvania
  • New Jersey
  • Delaware

Nevertheless, as recently as 2014, they collectively consumed 88 percent of all home heating oil sold nationwide, according to the U. S. Department of Energy, with the bulk of that supply originating in Canada.
