SELECTED CHARTS ON ENERGY AND JET FUEL AVAILABILITY AND PRICE

Kerosene jet fuel availability and price are two major problem areas of concern to air carriers through the 1980s. Availability and price are functions of many variables: world oil supply and consumption, conservation and efficiencies in all consuming sectors, substitution of other forms of energy for petroleum, technical efficiency of aircraft, introduction of new equipment during the 1980s, traffic trends, and utilization of equipment. These factors are integrated here to obtain estimates of kerosene jet fuel consumption and price during the 1980s for air carriers in the intra-North America and overseas-to and from-North America markets. (North America, as used here, includes Canada and the United States.) Allocation priorities were not considered as a factor in this discussion. (Author)
