Is oil conservation the answer?

Here is a question that I would like to have the answer to:
Which source produces the most electrical energy today in the U.S.? Is it coal or a combination of oil, windmills, or solar assisted? Is the production of electricity the biggest user of energy resources in the U.S.?

More than you ever wanted to know or ever expected to find, courtesy of the U.S. Government and Your Tax Dollars at work:
Energy Information Administration - EIA - Official Energy Statistics from the U.S. Government

-
Douglas Campbell, P.E.

1986 Isuzu P'up, 177,673.8 miles.
- Hella headlights (highly recommended)
- DOT C-2 back end (also recommended)
- R-12 air conditioner converted to R-406a. Saved ozone and money
- 4.1:1 final drive converted to 3.4:1. Quieter, better mileage but it's a good thing I live in the flat Midwest.
- 9/22/2007, age 21: Still running well when reluctantly sent away for reincarnation, due to body & frame rust.
- Never did get around to converting it to french-fry oil, which is why I originally stumbled upon this site.
