Abstract

Energy conservation has emerged as a major individual concern and national policy issue in many countries, especially since the oil embargo crisis of 1973. Substantial research in this area has focused on how changes in energy availability have affected attitudes toward various forms of transportation. A survey conducted by the SE Michigan Transit Authority (SEMTA) in seven counties found numerous attitudinal differences, notably between urban and rural populations, and a general hostility toward any coercive measures to reduce automobile use.-J.R.McDonald
