Oil is the source of 75.78% of the energy consumed by individuals in Nova Scotia. Most of it is used to move us from place to place. Nearly all automobiles, buses and airplanes run on gasoline or diesel which are made from oil.  Oil is also used to fuel furnaces and hot water heaters in the majority of Nova Scotia homes.
 
In 2010, the residential sector
consumed 65,376,290 GJ of oil and
emitted 5,189,144 GHG tonnes.
