WORLDWIDE ENERGY SITUATION--IMPACT ON COMMERCIAL VEHICLES
The world consumption rate of oil is increasing so fast that the supply will not keep pace. Recognizing that there is a close relationship between energy consumption and the performance of national economies, especially in industrialized nations, other fuels will be needed to meet growth demands. This transition will require some complex decisions. Nations will have to choose more sparingly among alternative uses of the limited supplies of petroleum. One of the uses will be for commercial vehicles. However, the limited supplies and continuing higher prices will necessarily result in more fuel-efficient vehicles, more sophisticated bulk quantity delivery systems, and more consolidated production-delivery-marketing networks.
