The need too consider energy in the development of transportation plans and programs is a relatively new development. The relation between the national energy problem and state and local actions is not widely understood. This paper discusses the Federal Energy Administration's program to support the development and implementation of state energy conservation plans and describes the required and optional transportation elements of such plans. It identifies various actions that can be instituted at the state, local, and regional levels. Finally, it discusses the trade-offs that may have to be made in developing the transportation programs to meet energy, air quality, and other objectives. /Author/
