The disruption caused by gasoline shortages of the 1970s and the resulting problems commuters experienced pointed out the need to prepare for future shortages. The Department of Transportation has encouraged the development of transportation contingency plans at the local level to maintain commuter mobility during petroleum shortages. Few urban areas, however, have prepared plans which would be very helpful. Further, progress in developing contingency plans has slowed down in many areas. New efforts are needed to spur areas to complete contingency plans and improve plans already developed so that all areas will be better prepared to respond to commuters transportation needs, should they arise.
