I want to know where I can find the most complete breakdown of an average American's energy consumption.

Including their share of the industrial and food production energy use.

That also includes a breakdown within each of those subsections where energy is being used.

Anyone know where I can find the most complete info on this?

hau Eric,
You are looking for information that is going to be separate since there isn't a be all government agency.

The US Department of Energy might be a good starting point but fuel is going be in one place.
Electricity will be in another place.

The USDA will have the figures on Farm fuel and other energy expenses for farms but not for consumers.

So the complete answer is there will only be a compendium of this information when you have gathered it and put it together.
