The magnitude of total transportation fuel comsumption in Texas is discussed and that portion of total transportation fuel used for intercity travel is identified. Intercity movement of people and goods is covered along with the fuel efficiency of the intercity travel modes. An estimate is provided of existing and future passenger-miles and ton-miles of intercity travel in Texas. From these data, estimates of fuel consumption are formulated. Indications of the magnitude of fuel savings that might result from modal shifts are also presented.
