2 This short time period masks wide fluctuations in U.S. arsenic consumption. Since 1973 (when 22,000 metric tons were consumed), consumption varied between a low of 9,700 metric tons in 1976 to a high of 23,900 metric tons in 1992. Between 1973 and 1995, consumption increased by only one percent (SRI, 1996).
