Recent history shows a steady growth in transportation energy use at a rate more than double the population growth rate. However, oil scarcities and increasing dependence on petroleum imports, coupled with rising environmental concern, could reverse these historical trends. It is technologically feasible to slow transportation energy growth by increasing transportation energy efficiency. Policies to achieve such goals would involve some life-style changes and important institutional decisions, but they do not imply a return to 'caves and candles'.
