REGIONAL ENERGY REQUIREMENTS ENERGY USAGE IN TRANSPORTATION

The performance and fuel consumption by mode of travel (translated in some cases into equivalent energy usage) are tabulated, comparisons are made of transportation activity in the same sample years as are used in the study, and comparative tables are presented of energy and transportation relative to GDP per head. Transportation as an indicator of urban activity is examined, and an attempt is made to distinguish between the use of transport for "production" and for social and recreational purposes. The paper presents information on fuel consumptions in the West Midlands of England.
