Missouri only produces 1% of the coal it consumes. Most of the coal fueling the state's coal-fired power plants comes by rail from Wyoming, and small amounts arrive by rail and truck from several other states, primarily Illinois.
Transportation is the largest energy-consuming sector in Missouri. The state is a national transportation hub on account of its central geographic location at the intersection of the three largest rivers in North America.
