An analysis of national research and development priorities indicates that transportation is the most critical need. Four major points are covered: (1) transportation is essential and the automobile is the major mode of choice; (2) transportation is almost totally dependent upon oil, although domestic supplies are inadequate and foreign supplies are not assured; (3) unlike other markets, such as industrial, residential and commercial, competitive alternatives for the transportation market do not exist and must be developed; and (4) there are promising Research & Development possibilities for alternate fuels and vehicles but they are inadequately funded.
