In every country, road transport energy needs represent the major part of the total energy consumed by all means of transport. This amount of energy is a considerable part of overall energy needs, and is, furthermore, almost exclusively met by petroleum. Energy conservation, a universal concern, justifies the efforts undertaken in all the industrialized countries regarding the increasing of the effectiveness of road transport, which may hopefully offset increased transportation demand and energy needs, particularly as far as petroleum is concerned. The aim of this paper is to discuss the foreseeable future development of road transport with a view to energy and petroleum consumption reductions. The data have particular reference to Italy.
