Canada Used Less Energy in 2005

March 16, 2007

From Statistics Canada on Energy Supply and Demand (2005).

Canada’s demand for energy fell for the first time in three years in 2005, as a result of declining consumption in the nation’s industrial and residential sectors.

This includes gasoline consumption.

Volumes of motor gasoline sales declined in 2005 for the first time since 1991, possibly the result of soaring prices at the pump.
