Although diesel and gasoline are still the main energy sources used in urban transportation, alternative and transitional energy sources have been introduced. The alternative and transitional energy sources include electricity (used in hybrid, electric, and fuel-cell Cited by: 9.

    Transportation sector energy consumption by fuel. Worldwide, petroleum and other liquid fuels. are the dominant source of transportation energy, although their share of total transportation energy declines over the IEO projection period, from 96% in to 88% in World transportation. Section outlines energy use for U.S. transportation overall. Passenger and freight transport are covered in Sections and , respectively. Section briefly discusses the effects of alternative fuels on the efficiency of highway vehicles. Much of the discussion in this chapter is “vehicle-centric” in the sense that it focuses on.
