FUEL DEMAND AND FUEL EFFICIENCY IN THE US COMMERCIAL AIRLINE INDUSTRY AND THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY: AN ANALYSIS OF TRENDS AND IMPLICATIONS

A study of trends in fuel use and efficiency in the US commercial airlines industry is extended back to 1967 in order to compare the relative contributions of the factors influencing efficiency during a period of stable fuel prices (1967 to 1972) versus a period of fuel price growth (1973 to 1980). A similar analysis disaggregates the components of truck efficiency and evaluates their relative impact on fuel consumption in the trucking industry. (ERA citation 07:047223)
