POLICY IMPLICATIONS OF URBAN TRAVELER RESPONSE TO RECENT GASOLINE SHORTAGES

This paper reviews the major findings of prior studies of gasoline shortages, especially those studies of travel behavior during the 1973-1974 gasoline shortage. The discussion notes the important consistent findings between these studies and more recent studies conducted during the 1979 shortages. Based on this review, policy implications for short-range and long-range urban transportation planning are identified.
