There is a proliferation of data on energy related to transportation. However, their present origin and form render their retrieval and use in decision making quite difficult. Therefore, the framework of an information system for transportation energy consumption is developed and applied. The concept of the upper and lower bounds for parameters that measure socioeconomic and technological trends in relation to transportation energy is utilized in long-term forecasting. The inputs, the transformations, and outputs are clearly but not uniquely defined. Examples of information and forecasts provided by the system developed and useful for policy making are given the form of tables. However, the benefits of the system developed cannot be appreciated until it is computerized and operated by an interactive computer system. This is a subject of further research and development.
