ENERGY AND TEXAS TRANSPORTATION

As a result of the shortages experienced in 1974 and 1979, considerable attention has been focused on energy availability and the relationship between transportation and energy. This report complements a previous report entitled "Trends in Texas Transportation Fuel Consumption" (Technical Report 1059-1). This report addresses three major topics: 1) a relationship between the economy of Texas and Texas transportation fuel consumption; 2) quantitative data describing the magnitude of the fuel shortfalls that occurred in 1974 and 1979; and 3) potential transportation energy conservation options.
