FUEL CONSERVATION MEASURES: THE TRANSPORTATION SECTOR. VOLUME I
This report presents the evaluations of numerous suggested conservation measures that might be initiated to conserve transportation energy including mandatory government control, an economic pricing system and voluntary reduction. Estimates of potential fuel savings for each are also documented. For those instances in which data are available, an evaluation of the success of programs instituted since the energy shortage became public knowledge (such as reduced highway speed limits) is presented.
