We would like to know how much of gasoline sales in New York State are from Local Households as opposed to visitors. In other words, we would like to say "Local residents consume XX% of gasoline sold in the state of New York."
Currently, we take the total household demand for commodity 3408 - 'Retail Services Gasoline Stores' from the Household Local Commodity Demand dataset and divide it by the region industry commodity production for 408 - 'Retail Services Gasoline Stores' in the Industry Commodity Production dataset. This calculation yields a total New York resident demand of 90.22%.
Is this an appropriate method to derive the demand of gasoline from New York Residents?
