A SUMMARY OF OPPORTUNITIES TO CONSERVE TRANSPORTATION ENERGY
This report surveys the near term opportunities for energy conservation in passenger and freight transportation. The present (1972) transportation energy flows and modal efficiencies are characterized. A total of 35 possible conservation measures are discussed and ranked for effectiveness. Their potential fuel savings are projected for 1980 and 1990.
