This program collects, evaluates, assembles, analyzes, and disseminates information on energy resource reserves, production, demand, technology, and related economic and statistical information. This information is used to assess the adequacy of energy resources to meet near and longer term domestic demands.

These surveys provide a basic set of data pertaining to the structure, efficiency, and behavior of petroleum markets. These data are published by EIA on its Web site, http://www.eia.gov, as well as in publications such as the Monthly Energy Review (http://www.eia.gov/ DATES: E:\FR\FM\07AUN1.SGM 07AUN1
