The petroleum crisis, which came about so very suddenly in October 1973, but which was bound to happen sooner or later, has compromised a situation of economic stability where low prices and the glut of liquid energy played a determinant role. In the transport sector more particularly, there is not so much a reversal of trends as a technico-economic reappraisal of the position and policies that the various transport modes expect to defend over the next ten years. The appended bibliographical selection is precisely designed to indicate the more important documents dealing with the various aspects of this problem of energy linked to transport. Attention is drawn to the very selective character of this bibliography (164 references), in which numerous articles recently published in the popular press have been deliberately excluded.
