What percentage of electricity in the US is produced by oil burning power plants?

In 2010, less than 1% of the electricity generated in the US was produced by oil burning power plants. Hawaii and Florida are the states where most of the oil burning power plants are located. This likely is because the the energy source, oil, is cheaper to transport to distant offshore locations than other sources, like gas or coal.

19.3% of electricity in the US was produced by nuclear fission in 2005.

49.7% came from coal-fired power plants, 18.7% from natural gas, 6.5% from hydroelectric, and other minor contributions from other sources.
